Uptown Gets Healthier
Mary Ann Fitzmorris August 08, 2019 09:50 Anxiously Awaited
The latest outpost of the Daily Beet opened this morning on Magazine St, in the space formerly occupied by Smashburger. There is something deliciously oxymoronic about that. Starting in the St. Roch Market in 2015 as Juice NOLA, Dylan Maisel dreamed of bringing healthier food options to New Orleanians.
Juice NOLA was so well received by the community that Dylan opened his first brick and mortar in the Beacon on Girod, in the busy new residential area of the Warehouse District. And now the third location brings to customers Uptown the same gourmet vegan fare and healthy twists on familiar foods. Think Banana Oat Pancakes with strawberry cashew crema, toasted walnuts, fresh fruit and maple syrup. Or Beet Benedict, with two poached eggs served over Bellegarde Country Loaf, with avocado mash and Miso-beet Hollandaise, fresh herbs, and spinach.
The fast-casual eatery owes its beautiful look to local designers at Concordia and to Goodwood, the local custom furniture fabricator that brought their vision to life. All cash proceeds from today’s opening will be donated to Grow Dat, an Urban Farm and Youth Development Organization employing over 100 kids from across New Orleans. Their mission is to nurture tomorrow’s community leaders through the importance of growing food.
