Go ahead... get Fresh

Here's the deal, guys: I'm cutting way back on meat to improve my health. Lucky for me, I love vegetarian/vegan options. Even luckier for me, I work down the street from Fresh.

My friend and fellow Enquirer staffer Byron McCauley and I stopped by the downtown restaurant earlier this afternoon. We both ordered the hummus and veggie sandwich (mine on a whole wheat bread, his on focaccia) and the wild mint tea. The menu is so healthy just reading it makes you feel good.

My sandwich was delicious albeit a tad pricey at $6.98. The downside? They offered pretzels or an apple - a Red Delicious apple! Needless to say, I passed on the apple, but Byron didn't. And here I thought he was a foodie...

I really enjoyed Fresh, with my veggie sandwich on my fancy bread.

But I have more 'splainin to do.

My guess is she avoided the humble and reliable red delicious because she is an apple elistist. She scoffs at the humble granny smith or the golden delicious and probably the bodacious Jonathan.

She prefers the pricey and haughty Honeycrisp apple, with its stratospheric price points -- even though they taste really good.

Me, I'm a foodie, but I always support the common working eater.
