Bowls will be open from 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday, according to the application filed with the city. Benton and Larson are expecting up to 150 customers daily.

The menu will feature quick and healthy cold and hot dishes served in bowls, Benton said. Examples of the dishes include acai bowls, tuna poke, Mediterranean farro, and a miso quinoa bowl. Ingredients will be sourced locally and organically grown whenever possible, and will be at their seasonal peak, Benton said.

Benton met Larson after a session at Float and began talking about their respective businesses.

“He contacted me a month later, telling me about some amazing bowl dishes he had experienced out West,  I was intrigued and started researching the concept in depth,” Benton said. “Andy is the perfect partner for this endeavor, coming from a tax accountant background. He’s a code aficionado, with infinite patience when it comes to permits, licensing, and design. We are excited to offer quick meal options which are clean, nourishing, delicious, and globally inspired.”
