From the exterior, this kosher natural food restaurant/juice bar doesn't look like any other average smoothie store, and cartoonish posters of buck-tooth bunnies lining the walls make the interior look like a kid's soda fountain. But the smoothies here could be considered nectar for the casual gourmet: rich and unusual combinations like the "Chilled Lych" (litchi juice, banana, and housemade ginger-pear and litchi sorbets). Gourmet Carrot's solid food -- ranging from sandwiches, to salads, to complete entrées such as tamarind-glazed local mahi-mahi with two vegetable side dishes -- is tasty enough to make one forgive and forget that it's good for you. The menu does not feature red meat, shellfish, or dairy, but there are plenty of poultry, fish, and vegetarian (including vegan) items.
