This build-your-own-bowl mini chain, founded on Florida’s west coast in 2014, has opened its first East Coast location in the new Park Place plaza.
“We are here to provide a healthy, on-the-go option at an affordable price. We have gluten-free offerings, hormone- and antibiotic-free grilled meats and vegan options,” says chef Ryan Leto, who worked with celebrity chef Roy Yamaguchi for 14 years. “In addition to our freshly brewed teas and homemade frescas, we will be featuring a line of craft sodas.”
An assembly line for bowls ($7.95 or $9.95) starts with bases, such as sweet potato noodles, and ends with sauces, such as coconut sriracha.
“All of our locations feature individual art and contemporary decor,” founder David Pullman says. “We have an original mural inspired by — and a tribute to — Boca Raton, featured on our wall as you approach the service line. We have incorporated our FK rose pattern in new and creative ways. We will also be partnering with a local artist to feature their original work on one of our walls.”
Lunch and dinner are served daily amid teal seating and matching tile. A soaring ceiling covers an attractive patio with a lounge and fountain.
