Get Fruity

In a city rife with fatty cuts of meat, cloyingly sweet coladas and lard-infused breads -- we can always use a few more clean eating options. Ten Fruits, downtown's newest addition to the burgeoning juice movement, is hosting its grand opening next week - and that means free healthy drinks and eats for all. From 6 to 9 p.m. on Wednesday, May 8, the modern, marble-floored outpost on the corner of Third Avenue and Second Street, will have a DJ, free foodstuffs and plenty of other health-enthusiasts with whom to mingle. We were lucky enough to sample some of their menu items, including the hearty, quinoa and lucuma-blended Andean Elixir (which co-owner David Polinsky swears caused him to inadvertently drop pounds, $8); the detoxifying Spa Day -- a ginger, carrot and cucumber fresh-pressed juice blend ($8); the sweet, impossibly creamy homemade Greek yogurt with blueberries, chia seeds and honey ($3.90) and house-made milks including cashew, soy and almond (all $6).
