Healthy Fast Food Restaurant Eyes Downtown Spots

A California-based company offering healthier fast food options could soon be coming to Boston. Lyfe Kitchen is looking for space in the city’s Downtown Crossing, Seaport District and Faneuil Hall areas in an effort to bring their quick-and-healthy restaurant concept from the West Coast to the East, the Boston Business Journal reports. The company currently has two locations in Culver City and Palo Alto, CA and is looking to expand to 250 restaurants nationwide, according to the BBJ. That could include up to 10 Lyfe Kitchens in the Boston area. Lyfe Kitchen’s menu items are all under 600 calories each, and the company promises “quality food using locally and sustainably sourced ingredients whenever possible,” according to its website, restaurant.lyfekitchen.com. The menu features breakfast to dinner options, with salads, “small bites” and desserts in between. Main dish offerings include a quinoa crunch wrap (547 calories, $ 8.99), grilled barramundi with soba noodles (286 calories, $ 13.99) and portobello pasta (581 calories, $ 11.99), among many others. Lyfe Kitchen co-founder Michael Donahue, who previously served as McDonald’s global communications chief, told the Journal he feels Boston would be a “robust market” for the new company, which opened its second location in March. The company is currently looking for an eligible franchisee to operate the Boston sites, according to the BBJ report. SOUTH END PATCH: Facebook | Twitter | E-mail Updates  South End Patch

Should South End Residents Get to ‘Hold’ Their Parking Spots?

In the wake of the Blizzard of 2013, parking has become unbelievably difficult between the city’s parking ban, the shrinking of streets to one-lane roads, and the 10-or-more-foot high and five-foot deep piles of snow that line the streets. Bostonians all know of the tradition in the city that when you shovel out a parking spot, you can “hold” that parking spot with a chair, trash barrel or other object for up to 48 hours after the parking ban ends.  Proponents say that the ban encourages people to do a good job clearing out their spot, knowing their hard work won’t go to waste as soon as they move their car. Opponents say that you can’t claim a parking spot as “yours” just because you parked there before the blizzard.  What’s your personal policy? Is there anywhere to park, between the South End’s parking ban, the huge snow piles in the neighborhood, and the spot savers? Is it your right to a parking spot after you put in the sweat and manpower necessary to clear it out? Should the city do anything to discourage this behavior? Which streets in the South End area have the highest number of “saved” spots? Let us know in the comments below. SOUTH END PATCH: Facebook | Twitter | E-mail Updates South End Patch
