New Openings: A Colorful, Healthy, Locally-Sourced Food on Rt 17

Smoked salmon spinach salad with cherry tomatoes, egg, house made pickled onion and capers topped with a house made lemon citronette.

One of my least favorite places to be is Route 17 but now, even when I’m in a rush shuttling kids to and fro, there is a healthy, organic option where we can grab a delicious dinner or snacks while we’re on the road: Thorn & Roots. It replaced B Good which we were sad to see go. Similar to B Good, Thorn & Roots is committed to making healthy food sourced from local farms. “We believe in getting back to our roots and bringing local farms to urban communities.” There food is bright, colorful and delicious!

Avocado and salmon toast with pickled onions and capers.

Boost your energy with cold-pressed juices, smoothies, and açai bowls or munch on avocado toasts, salads, and grain bowls made with organically grown ingredients like the protein- and vitamin-packed Asian Ginger Power Bowl filled with quinoa, mixed greens, roasted broccoli, pickled carrots, edamame, asian slaw, avocado and black sesame seeds They also offer dairy-free and gluten-free options.
