The first Texas LYFE Kitchen restaurant in Plano, Texas, is in a set-back neighborhood shopping center.
Freshness cues abound at LYFE Kitchen, including these columns of citrus.
A six-seat area is set aside between point-of-sale terminals for the juice bar.
A growing number of restaurants are adding a bit of whimsy to their door pulls, including LYFE Kitchen with these forks.
A large fork serves as a specials stand at the entry, and covered patio seating is provided along the two street-side exposed areas of the property.
Walls feature quotes, including this one from author-humorist Fran Lebowitz.
A tri-level divider planted with live herbs separates the ordering and juice bar areas from the seated dining area, including this communal table.
The live herb divider provides a walkway from the order area to the seating area and a kiosk where guests can pick up utensils, napkins and serve themselves water.
A large mural in the dining room, in this view looking from the counter order area, features such words as “sustainable,” “local”, “organic” and “grass fed.”
Dining room seating ranges from rattan-styled chairs, some with cushions, to traditional hard-surface restaurant chairs and rounded banquettes.
The juice bar provides a buffer between the pass-through kitchen and the ordering area.
Separate menus are available for those who want to order gluten free (GF), vegetarian (V) or face no dietary limits (E for Eat). “WB” stands for “wines and beverages.”
Two point-of-sale registers are available for guests, and a third, to the right and past the juice bar seating, can be employed in busy times or for takeout orders.
Water glasses, service ware, napkins and straws are positioned near the dining room.
Water is offered at taps in chilled sparkling, chilled flat and “ambient” — room temperature — versions.
The logos on the wine glasses, like at many restaurants, provide a mark for getting the perfect six-ounce pour.
The healthful fast-casual concept expands with a location in Plano, Texas.
