After an unfortunate health scare, Hoss Zaré, the chef and owner of ~ZARÉ AT FLY TRAP~, has been significantly turning things around in his diet (guess who has lost 50 pounds?). And opening Wednesday April 13th is his new healthy and casual lunch offering, Zaré’s Grill and Grain. It will be counter service, but diners will be able to dine in the restaurant or order the food to go. The menu includes hearty Persian soups, like ash reshteh ($8), a traditional spinach and noodle soup; a variety of wraps, like low-fat ground lamb ($11) with braised cipolline onions, barrel-aged feta, fresh mint, basil, and tarragon; and grains with greens and healthy salads, like one with French lentils ($12), grilled salmon, fennel, roasted bell peppers, lemon thyme, freshly shaved turmeric, braised endive, balsamic vinaigrette, and salsa verde (sounds amazing). Lunch will be served Mon-Fri 11am-2pm.
