Boca Raton’s New Superfood Haven

In 2008—a pre-kale, -quinoa, and -kombucha time when bland iceberg lettuce salads were the healthiest option on most menus—restaurateur Sam Fox and Dr. Andrew Weil, a leading voice in the field of integrative medicine, set out to introduce the American palate to nourishing meals with mass appeal. Their concept, True Food Kitchen, forged a dining experience where healthy and delicious are synonymous with a menu based on Dr. Weil’s anti-inflammatory food pyramid. The diet emphasizes consuming healthy fats and antioxidant-rich superfoods that lessen inflammation in the body, hypothesized to be at the root of the increasing prevalence of cancer and neurological diseases. At True Food Kitchen, now open in Boca Raton, dishes like the grilled salmon with cilantro pumpkin seed pesto and the ancient grains bowl with miso-glazed sweet potatoes, turmeric, grilled portobellos, charred onions, snow peas, avocado, and hemp seeds aim to reconnect guests with the source of their food. Prep cooks chop up seasonal, organic produce in plain sight of the dining room; all beef is grass-fed; cocktails are made with fresh-pressed fruit and organic spirits; and most desserts are vegan. Restaurant trends come and go, but 10 years after opening its first location, this chain proves one thing remains constant: Transparency and feel-good food never go out of style. (561-419-8105)
