One of the many things I love about Plano is all of the healthy, from scratch restaurants. It is often difficult to find a place to eat, because Colton and I like everything and there are so many choices. Last week, my sister-in-law, future sister-in-law and I went to Lyfe Kitchen for dinner before a sister movie date. Lyfe Kitchen originated in California and now has three Dallas locations. The Plano location is at Preston Park village
First impression: The first thing I noticed when I walked in was all of the fresh herbs growing. The restaurant is clean and bright. Behind the counter, the Lyfe Waters turned in their mixing machines and tempted all of us. We asked about their local wines on tap (yes, on tap!) and were given a couple of tasters before choosing. The menu is available in several different formats and easy to read.
The food: All three of us ordered something different, so we were able to try several different things. I got the BBQ chicken flatbread, and it was delicious. The smoky bbq mixed well with the sweet veggies and grilled chicken. The margherita flatbread, another great choice, looked and tasted fresh. We also tried the quinoa crunch bowl with grilled chicken. I really liked this entree, but it was a little spicy for my sister. It was also a large portion, so it could be shared. We tried the cucumber mint lyfe water made of fresh cucumber juice, mint, lime, and agave. It was different, but so refreshing. I would recommend getting it (or try another one of the lyfe waters) when you go.
Raves: The food is delicious. There are many vegetarian/vegan/gluten free options to fit a variety of health needs. Everyone we spoke with that worked there was friendly and knowledgeable. The restaurant is clean and there was a water station that offered cold, room temperature and sparking water. Again, even their water station offers a variety to fit different preferences.
Hesistations: They do not have a full bar or large variety of beer and wines, but they do have several reasonably priced options on tap all from local places.
Overall, I would highly recommend Lyfe Kitchen! They are quick, friendly, and offer a wide variety of healthy choices that meets all diets. The food is served pretty and tastes even more delicious than it looks. I doubt you will be disappointed with anything you order.
