There’s no denying that the demand for healthy, quality food is on the rise, and MYX Creative Kitchen is on a mission to deliver. Located off of Greenwich Avenue, MYX is a made-to-order, three-meals-a-day concept that offers quality food in a fast-casual setting. The menu, which boasts everything from morning acai bowls to salads to sauté bowls, is under the direction of Chef Fausto Mieres, a graduate of the French Culinary Institute whose local kitchen cred includes stints at Norwalk farm-to-table restaurant Oak + Almond and bartaco.
When you walk in, you’re greeted with an open, airy space punctuated by the signature prep line, where you can get a bird’s eye view of everything that goes into your meal. Build your own sauté bowl, salad, noodle bowl, flatbread pizza, or flatbread sandwich. (If you don’t love making decisions, choose one of the chef’s selections.) In a hurry? There’s a grab-and-go refrigerator to pick up snacks, desserts, salads, sandwiches, and wraps that are made fresh daily.
Menu highlights include the Good as Gold bowl, a sauté bowl with kale, quinoa, sweet potatoes, broccoli, charred onion, bean sprouts, and a turmeric-garlic sauce. A hit among the salad options is the Mykonos Bowl, a base of romaine lettuce with red peppers, tomatoes, radish, red onion, cucumber, olives, and feta, topped with a lemon-tahini dressing. Gluten-free options are plentiful throughout the entire menu, even among the pizzas and flatbread sandwiches. As for drinks to accompany your meal, there are house-made juices, organic coffee, and even fresh coconut water at the ready.
For the super health conscious, MYX recently launched a new website calculator that provides customers with nutritional information about their meal, including total calories, fats, proteins, and carbs. To add to the fun, the restaurant hosts a Live Well Speaker Series that features healthy lifestyle authors, nutrition and exercise coaches, as well as local wellness experts.
