Fresh/Juice for Life - bad experience

albanis | Jul 10, 2008 05:29 AM

I hadn't been to Fresh in a while and my diet's actually changed a lot so I had to order a bit more carefully.

Anyway, I ordered a salad and asked for the peanuts to be omitted. They said they couldn't do that. I decided there was not much else for me to eat so I got it anyway and would just not eat the peanuts. My mom ordered a salad with the tofu steaks addition When our tiny, expensive salads came, mine had peanuts thrown on top and hers had no tofu.

I asked why they couldn't just not put them on when they seem to have just NOT put on tofu steaks. These arbitrary rules are even worse when it's in a place that precisely caters to specific diets. Why would they mention tofu or tempeh on their menu if they're just not going to put it on?

This restaurant has the monopoly in the area but really I can just get some cheap sushi down the street or go to the market. I have been to so many of these kinds of restaurants in New York and it's a shame I can't find an equivalent here (LIVE is fine but even pricier)....
