This popular local food establishment has built its foundation on serving only the best, clean ingredients. Owner, Mike Nitto was looking for a place to serve healthy and nutritious meals after a career in golf and later martial arts. He and Chef Chris Burgess created a menu offering a delicious selection and opened in Sea Girt.
Now with another spot in Point Pleasant and two more locations coming: one in Little Silver and one in Long Branch, Fresh Kitchen remains true to its roots and still sources its ingredients from the best vendors. They also try to work with local farmers whenever possible. For example, the lettuce used in all the recipes is locally sourced, hydroponic and organic. There are several to choose from including spinach, kale, marigold, romaine, watercress, tatsoi, shiso and red sorrel. The benefits of each of these lettuces is explained on their website and why they were chosen to be on the menu.
These greens are the base of several salads on the menu and are included in other favorites like wraps. There are various protein add ons available that are also organic and free-range. You can choose to eat in or take out or create your own. The selections can work for vegan, vegetarian, and dairy-free diets.
This is what eating local is all about. Enjoy the friendly staff and convenience of local healthy food. Most importantly, the owner and chef value the impact of supporting local farms.
