Omnivore - A light post-gym meal

MetroFresh is all about light dining...unless it's not

I stopped at MetroFresh at Midtown Promenade after the gym Monday night, thinking I'd eat something low-calorie. Then I encountered this dish — strips of grilled flank steak over blue-cheese risotto with red-pepper coulis. Sold! Cost, including a cup of Thai coconut-chicken-rice soup, was only $12.95.

This reminds me of the recent study, widely reported, that concluded that if a restaurant advertises healthy food but also offers heavier dishes, people will often choose the latter while congratulating themselves for dining in a health-conscious restaurant.

MetroFresh posts its menu daily and I noticed that tonight's entrees (Tuesday) include chicken and dumplings. I have to eat elsewhere this evening; otherwise I'd be there.
