True Food Kitchen is like a spring garden set indoors, with sunlight pouring in from holes in the ceiling and plants at every turn. What wasn't colored bright lemon yellow was bright lime green. The word "refreshing" applies to almost every aspect of your experience here-especially the food. The chopped chicken salad is a crunchy, bright-as-summer, well-put-together mix of mango, manchego cheese, avocado, apple, shatteringly crisp marcona almonds, lettuce and chicken.
