Krissy Sciarra may own a cold-pressed juice bar in Chicago’s up-and-coming West Loop, but the 30-year-old’s entry into the culinary world was more “deep-frier” than “centrifugal juicer.” That’s because the brains behind Harvest Juicery—which started as a delivery service in December 2012 and opened a storefront last February—got her first taste of the chef life at age 15, flipping burgers at Wendy’s.
“We’re pretty much the first chef-driven cold-pressed juice store front in Chicago,” Sciarra says. “A lot of people here still don’t get the difference big-brand juice and cold-pressed juice. We get a lot of questions.”
Besides serving bottled blends and answering their questions, Harvest woos customers with seasonal carbonated juices on tap and juice popsicles (coming this summer).
Feeling creative? Here are three juice recipes straight off Harvest’s spring menu—and light-years away from the Wendy’s Frosty. —Jamie McKillop
