Rittenhouse has been getting healthful options of late: Snap Kitchen's refrigerated meals to go at 19th and Chestnut; sweetgreen's salads at 1821 Chestnut St., Farmer's Keep's salads at 10 S. 20th St., and Sip N Glo's juices at 257 S. 20th St.
Here's one on the way that puts it all together:
Smart Street Healthy Kitchen & Juice Bar - a rebranding of Jeff and Graceann Tinney's Juice Healthy Kitchen in Midtown Manhattan - is coming to 38 S. 19th St., which previously housed Kaufman's Deli and a branch of Famous 4th Street Deli. The couple are working with Graceann's brother, Joey Taormina.
Jeff Tinney promises healthful food - wraps/panini, salads, and entrees with 99 percent of the food made in-house and most items grilled or baked. He said Smart Street will source produce and proteins from local farms in season and will seek quality all-natural, GMO-free, and organic items when possible.
There will be a squeezed-to-order juice and smoothie bar that also will serve organic acai bowls.
Though the dining room will have 50 to 60 seats, they plan on a strong takeout and delivery business as well as partnerships with fitness and health clubs. The format is not entirely defined; Jeff Tinney says they may go with counter service by day and waiter service over dinner.
They are aiming for an Aug. 1 opening but there is a lot of work to be done.
