Fox Restaurant Concepts to Open True Food Kitchen in June

Fox Restaurant Concepts will open its first southeastern outpost of True Food Kitchen in Atlanta this June at Lenox Square. With a menu dedicated to simple, seasonal fare and based on an anti-inflammatory diet, True Food Kitchen offers a healthy, holistic dining experience.

Named a 2013 Nation’s Restaurant News “Break-out Brand,” True Food Kitchen has seven additional locations in the Western United States. The restaurant offers globally inspired cuisine including starters, salads, sandwiches, entrees and fresh-squeezed juices, based on Dr. Andrew Weil’s anti-inflammatory diet for optimum health. Tailoring the menu to specific dietary restrictions and allergies, True Food Kitchen offers a wide selection of vegan, vegetarian, organic and gluten-free options, along with dishes for those following a paleo or Mediterranean diet.

The menu draws inspiration from Mediterranean, Asian and traditional American flavors and features ingredients like grass-fed beef, sustainably raised fish and organic dairy and produce. Taking advantage of each season’s best ingredients, the menu rotates to give guests fresh dishes that don’t require added butter, salts or fats for flavor. Unique and nutritionally dense ingredients like sea buckthorn, kale and Anasazi beans are used throughout the menu for their vitamin- and antioxidant-rich properties. Year-round menu favorites include the “inside out” quinoa burger, Panang curry and turkey lasagna.

A full bar serves sustainable, organic or bio-dynamic wines and cocktails made with fresh fruit, honey and other natural flavorings. True Food Kitchen also offers non-alcoholic “natural refreshments” including juice, herb and vegetable blends like “kale-aid” with kale, apple, cucumber, celery, lemon and ginger and “hangover RX” with coconut water, pineapple, vanilla and orange juice. On the wine menu, guests can enjoy a unique bottle of Fox Block, a private wine label series developed by True Food Kitchen sommelier Regan Jasper in partnership with small vineyards. Each year, Jasper picks a different vineyard and produces a unique bottle. This year’s Fox Block Nine is from Melville Winery.

In addition to its healthy dining efforts, True Food Kitchen also strives to be an eco-friendly restaurant. Each location is Green Restaurant Certified and uses compostable take-out packaging and menus printed on paper from renewable resources. The dining room also features chairs made from recycled plastic soda bottles and reclaimed wood floors.

Fox Restaurant Concepts opened its first True Food Kitchen restaurant in Phoenix in 2008, with a menu based on the principals of Dr. Andrew Weil’s anti-inflammatory diet. Today the  eatery has eight locations that are designed to reflect their geographic region and serve globally inspired cuisine and regional, seasonal foods in an upscale, green environment.
