This spring, Dallas will add a new gem to its roster of healthy-dining destinations.
Flower Child, a new-to-Dallas concept from the brains behind True Food Kitchen, is opening at Inwood Village in March, bringing a slew of organic, veg/vegan and gluten-free options perfect for health-conscious eaters.
Methinks if you’re as big a fan of True Food as I am, Flower Child will be right up your culinary alley. I’m just a big, ol’ fan of Fox Restaurant Concepts’ eateries all around, having raved over The Henry, an incredible casual restaurant-bar in FRC’s home turf of Phoenix/Scottsdale; that concept’s slated to come to Dallas, too!
The Flower Child menu include soups and salads and main-entree vegetables and grains to which you can add your choice of chicken, salmon, non-GMO tofu or grass-fed steak. Think roasted butternut squash with kale in a maple-chestnut vinaigrette; Indian-spiced cauliflower; and gluten-free mac and cheese. Flower Child also features a number of bowls that can be protein-topped to your heart’s delight, including Thai cashew quinoa (zucchini, shiitake, snap peas), Mother Earth (above, ancient grains, sweet potato, broccoli pesto), and wraps like the smoked turkey-and-Gouda Flying Avocado and chicken-centered Bird is the Word, on wheat, flaxseed and chia seed tortillas.
Like True Food Kitchen, Flower Child will reside in a space with an open kitchen, spacious patio and dedicated take-out area. Unlike True Food, there’ll be yoga mat parking, perfect for stashing your goods before or after your Vinyasa Flow class.
Flower Child will be at 5450 W. Lovers Lane in Dallas, and for now, you can get a taste of its aesthetic at its website.
