I have to say that it takes some courage to open a healthy restaurant next to a burger joint, not that I expect a rivalry between Flatbread Grill and Bareburger...Flatbread Grill is fairly new as it opened a couple of weeks ago at the location where a frozen yogurt used to be.
The concept is not new: healthy Mediterranean food with freshly made dishes and breads baked daily on premises. I guess I was mainly interested by the computer where you order, pay and register the buzzer, allowing the patrons to take their time to customize their order, as well as the employees to cook.
Jodi went straight for a salad: goat cheese salad with some add-ons (grilled eggplant, croutons and chickpeas):
Interestingly, they told us that they did not have any croutons, that is surprising considering that it is a pretty basic item, especially knowing that they offer a Caesar salad on their menu. The salad, dressed with balsamic vinegar, was big: it is like frozen yogurt, you get a large cup and will always get more than what you can eat. There, they offer so many choices for the salad, that, if you are not careful, you will end up with a too big portion.
On my side, I was not sure what to get, so I decided to go for a combo: half Caesar salad (remember: no croutons) with half a chicken chipotle flat melt.
The Caesar salad came with a piece of bread that was delicious and probably the same one as the one they use for the flat melt called the "thumb bread".
The chicken chipotle flat melt was very good and I just wish I ordered a full one. It was composed of chicken with melted cheddar cheese, turkey bacon and some chipotle spread.
We also tried one of their drinks that was a mix between lemonade and iced tea: bad choice! We should have gone for the strawberry lemonade...
Despite that, I really liked my meal there. I guess Flatbread Grill is, like Pita Grill, the type of places where I would go when I feel like eating healthy...that is not that often!
Enjoy (I did)!
