If you love big salads — you know, big lettuce, big carrots, tomatoes like volleyballs (apologies to Jerry Seinfeld) — here’s big news: Salata, a fast-expanding chain out of Houston, is opening a kitchen at Plaza of the Americas in Downtown Dallas Aug. 15.
Salata serves tossed-to-order salads and wraps from a selection of more than 50 ingredients. Plus, the place offers hand-cut croutons and pita chips, signature soups and “a state-of-the-art beverage station with tea taps delivering house-made teas and lemonades.” Sweet.
Salata is only open for lunch (until 2 p.m.) for the time being.
Michael Mina, owner of this and three other franchises says he wants to serve “health-conscious consumers who want fresh … quick dining options at a great price, especially during the lunch hour.” He also, smartly, recognizes the rapid pace at which the area is growing.
“With countless businesses, art centers, schools, and parks nearby, we feel Plaza of the Americas is an excellent match for our brand and look forward to serving those who live and work in the area,” he notes via press release.
