Cover Story:

Fast and Fresh

George Koroneos

Take a stroll down Lexington Avenue in midtown Manhattan and you might be surprised by your dining options. No longer are you limited to a burger and fries; they've slowly been supplemented by hundreds of fast casual providers offering made-to-order salads, sandwiches, and even more exotic treats like Thai or Mexican. From Cosi to Europa, the goal is quick service in a relaxing atmosphere, and more often than not a healthier alternative.
