Whether you think it’s a trend or a food revolution, healthy restaurants with local ingredients and extensive vegetarian options are continuing to spring up around Preston Hollow.

Earlier this year, Cooper Fitness Center’s Cedars Woodfire Grill opened in July, and in fall of 2012 Seasons 52, with no menu item topping 475 calories, opened in NorthPark CenterAustin-based Snap Kitchen, a similar vegetarian-friendly fast-casual concept is also scheduled to open up in the neighborhood early 2014.

And now, Dallas Business Journal reports that Arizona-based True Food Kitchen joins the fold, opening Nov. 19 in the Cambridge building in the Plaza at the Preston Center.

This will be the first restaurant True Food Kitchen in Texas — there are six other locations in California, Arizona and Colorado.

Michael “Sully” Sullivan will serve as the executive chef at the Dallas location, preparing breakfast, lunch and dinner menu items, such as gluten free and vegetarian spaghetti squash casserole, pomegranate limeade with chia seed, and a grass-fed bison burger for the meat lovers.

Sam Fox of Fox Restaurant Concepts (who owns True Food Kitchen among others) developed the True Food concept after cooking with Dr. Andrew Weil. The menu adheres to Weil’s anti-inflammatory diet, and also has a cookbook with recipes of menu items so you can cook them for yourself at home.
