Healthy Hot Spot: Westville

by Marissa on May 3, 2012

I have one requirement for weeknight dinners out with friends: it has to be healthy. Weekends can be more lax but I lack to stay on track on weeknights.

Last week I accompanied my friend, wedding and event planner Karen Brown, to an event at the Metropolitan Pavilion. After a few hours sipping champagne and tasting cake, we were ready for a wholesome meal.

Luckily, one of my favorite restaurants, Westville, was just around the corner. There’s always a wait at all three locations of this laid-back neighborhood eatery, but we were lucky enough to snag a seat at the bar.

The menu is extensive but not overwhelming, changes frequently and pleases meat-eaters and vegetarians alike. My favorite part of the menu is the fresh vegetable market, more than 20 creative veggie side dishes. I can never decide on just one so I usually choose three or four and make a meal.

What We Ate: Karen and I shared Tuna Tartare as an appetizer and a market plate of Sauteed Kale, Roasted Butternut Squash, Soy Glazed Green Beans and Quinoa Pilaf

When We Dined: Dinner, Monday

Also On the Healthy Side: I’m partial to the vegetable market.

Be In the Know: Avoid the lines and waits by going at off-peak hours: 6-7:30 and 9:30-11 p.m.
