Zoës Kitchen offers fresh, healthy food in a fast-casual environment.
DR. PHILLIPS A new eatery on Restaurant Row is bringing a taste of the Mediterranean to Dr. Phillips.
Zoës Kitchen, a fast-casual restaurant that specializes in healthy foods made from scratch each day, opened April 21 and boasts dishes ranging from kabobs and salads to pitas, hummus and more.
“The menu is inspired by Mediterranean food philosophy with an emphasis in eating an abundance of fresh produce, whole grain, lean protein and nutrition-rich veggies,” said Justin Hurd, a manager at the new location. “Zoës Kitchen offers the chance to experience the benefits of living Mediterranean with high quality meals. We have a very affordable menu for lunch, dinner and catering.”
According to the restaurant’s website, “Zoë” means “life” in Greek, and that’s the mantra the chain goes by — live Mediterranean, live Zoës. Aside from its main, dine-in menu, the restaurant also has a separate menu for catering, which includes options for grill-outs, fresh-packed lunches, salads, soups, sandwiches, party trays, desserts and more. Guests can also try a piadina, an Italian flatbread sandwich with fresh and grilled ingredients.
Additionally, more food options come in the form of the Simply 500 and Gluten-Free menu, which offers dishes that are under or around 500 calories and caters to guests who cannot eat gluten. Vegetarian and vegan dishes make their appearances on all menus.
“Dr. Phillips is a vibrant community with families and individuals looking to lead an active and balanced lifestyle,” Hurd said. “We call that living Mediterranean. It’s so awesome to have Zoës in Dr. Phillips because the community has responded in such a phenomenal manner. They’re very accepting of us as an organization and our brand as a whole, paving the way for a healthy lifestyle.”
For frequent guests and those who are always looking to save some money, Zoës has a mobile app that gives users the opportunity to earn free items each time they submit a Zoës Kitchen receipt. Users also can complete weekly challenges for surprises.
“We’re really happy to be here and part of the Orlando community, we look forward to continued growth within Orlando and we are happy to be serving such a quality way of life to each and everyone who comes through our doors,” Hurd said.
