SOMERVILLE, NJ (PRWEB) February 07, 2018
The Salad House, a fast casual restaurant specializing in fresh customized and signature salads, is now open at 58 West Main Street in Downtown Somerville. The restaurant is one of several new eateries and cafes that has opened recently in the downtown district, with several more slated to open in the coming months—including Somerset County’s first brewpub.
“Downtown Somerville has certainly earned its reputation as a ‘foodie destination,’ with more than 45 popular restaurants and eateries to please every palate,” said Beth Anne MacDonald, executive director of the Downtown Somerville Alliance. “You can eat your way around the world here from Greek, Asian, Cuban, New American, French-inspired, Italian, Irish and more, but this year is particularly exciting because we’ve got several new concept restaurants and cafes that will add some new flavor to the downtown.”
The Salad House of Somerville is the latest of the small New Jersey franchise to open under the ownership of David Delinko. The restaurant creates fast healthy salads and meals that are made-to-order or signature salads that put a twist on popular favorites such as the “Greek Out,” “Eat Cobb,” “Stay Classy Caesar” and more.
“We serve health-conscious, comfort food that is personalized to suit the individual taste, dietary and nutritional needs of each and every customer whether they dine in or choose from our wide selection of catering options for their home or office family,” said Delinko. In addition to its namesake salads, the 20-seat restaurant serves soup, appetizers, sandwiches and flatbread pizzas. Outdoor dining will be available beginning in the spring.
The Salad House joins several newly opened restaurants in the downtown area including Kuay Tiew Noodles and More, serving authentic cuisine, and Fresh Tiki Bar, a café and juice bar specializing in smoothy bowls, fresh fruit smoothies, juices and more. Kuay Tiew opened in late 2017, and its signature noodle, soup and rice dishes are garnering rave reviews. Fresh Tiki Bar on Division Street Plaza originally opened with walk up service and outdoor dining, but recently expanded with an indoor café.
Slated to open this spring are the Village Brewing Company, Somerset County’s first brewpub, serving its own micro brews and progressive American cuisine, and Grumpy Bobas, a bubble tea café, offering premium customizable fruit and milk teas using whole and organic ingredients whenever possible.
“We’re so excited to bring our one of a kind bubble teas to Somerville,” said Grumpy Bobas owner, Yanshu Liu. “Somerville is such an eclectic downtown with so many small, independent businesses offering unique products and experiences. We think we’ll fit right in.”
