Magic Mix Juicery opens in the Financial District


Magic Mix JuiceryThis week, a brand-new juice bar and raw, vegan cafe opened at 102 Fulton Street in the Financial District, a neighborhood where a good green juice can be hard to find.

Magic Mix Juicery’s menu is divided into Greens, Roots, and Fruits and it also blends smoothies—from the green to the super sweet. (Example of the latter: the Nutter Buttercup, with raw almond butter, almond milk, cacao, maca, and cinnamon.)

The menu includes a line-up of raw, vegan breakfast items, salads, desserts, and some surprisingly hearty entrees, like the East Meets West Burger, a sunflower-seed patty with pickles, shiitake “bacon,” kim chee, and ketchup.

“Being healthy shouldn’t have to mean depriving yourself,” said founder Jil Larsen, an Institute for Integrative Nutrition grad who founded the Juicery after a post-illness health awakening. Larsen hopes that Magic Mix Juicery will  help people maintain their health goals while accommodating busy lifestyles. (Wall Street traders?)

Juice range between $9 and $13, and food items stay in the ballpark of $7.50 to $14. Magic Mix also offers take-home cleanse programs in a set of seven juices for a flat $60. We can’t wait to take a sip. —Amy Eley
