Shake Shack is sending its burger flippers to every corner of the earth, and New Yorkers have literally gone mad for cronuts, but do not despair, healthy eater.

This week, New York saw an influx of healthy grab-and-go eateries that will make it easier than ever to score a superfood salad on your lunch break. And these are in addition to other recent healthy arrivals, like Mulberry & Vine and Ellary’s Greens and last fall The Butcher’s Daughter and Hu Kitchen. With all these healthy boites opening downtown, it’s getting harder to justify a lazy night of Chinese takeout.

Here’s breakdown of New York City’s nutritious new-comers:

Nourish Kitchen + Table
Open date: July 15
Neighborhood: West Village
Registered dietician Marissa Lippert serves up seasonal salads, clean protein, juices, and more—in a sweet, gorgeously decorated space.

This DC-based eco-friendly chain’s salads inspire literal obsession among its fans, and its modern space inside the NoMad hotel will be its first New York location. Its second is already slated for Tribeca. —Lisa Elaine Held
