Entrepreneurial twins Kriti and Kunal Sehgal are using their organic Rittenhouse cafe Pure Fare as a springboard for a healthful quick-serve cafe around the corner serving what they bill as "a new kind of Mediterranean."
Agno Grill is now open at 2104 Chestnut St., which last was a branch of El Fuego. The Greek word Agno (or αγνο) means pure.
You order at the counter. Start with one of three bases - spinach salad, black rice, or a gluten-free lavash-like wrap. Then add one of five proteins - grilled chicken, steak, veggies, baked tuna, or falafel.
Then choose three toppings - such as pickled beets, roasted carrots, braised radicchio, or cucumber tomato salad.
