Latin Beet Kitchen Opens in New York City’s Flatiron District

The fast-casual newcomer brings unexpected flavors to the neighborhood

Menu ingredients at Latin Beet Kitchen in New York City.

Part takeout, part dine-in, and entirely wholesome, the newly opened Latin Beet Kitchen in New York City’s Flatiron District has entered the ever-growing healthy fast-food arena with the launch of its Latin-inspired breakfast and lunch options comprising organic, gluten-free, and non-GMO ingredients.

The sister restaurant to the dinner-only Raymi Peruvian Kitchen, Latin Beet serves up a tasty variety of bowls, arepas, salads and toasts made with salmon, tuna, steak, chicken, and veggies faster than you can say “beet me.”

Owner Roger Torres explained to us that he really believes “you are what you eat and, to stay healthy, and as a triathlon competitor, food is my source of energy, so I take this very seriously.”

If you ask us, it can be hard to feel full and satisfied—let alone delighted—by the prospect of “healthy” eating. In this case, though, the bowls deliver, and it’s the best lunch option for blocks.

If you feel the autumn air calling you and want to sit outside, there are tables for you there on the sidewalk of 24th Street. But better still, past the quick-serve counter, is a well-appointed interior dining room that would normally signal table service but lacks anything of the kind. It’s a unique execution of the concept that not only works, but also feels incredibly “fresh.”
