Downtown dwellers and office workers have a new health-focused option specializing in lunch, breakfast and takeaway meals for the week.
Feature Meals has an address of 598 Main St., but its entrance is around the corner on Chippewa Street.
Owners Mike Khoury and Justin Tartick are offering simple meals, and more intricate ones, aiming for followers of paleo, keto and vegan diets, and those eating gluten-free.
"We're getting natural products and cooking them simply," Khoury said.
Chicken, beef, turkey, vegetables and grains are building blocks of the Feature menu. It changes week to week, but April 30 menu included pesto roasted chicken, beef meatloaf and black bean and quinoa fritters with hummus.
"We want to offer downtown a nutrition option that's real food," Khoury said. "Homestyle, hearty, not covered in sugar and processed fats." Feature does not have a deep fryer.
Lunches include a protein over grains or greens, and a vegetable side or two ($6.99-$9.99).
There's also a full coffee bar powered by Tipico coffee, from espresso to "bulletproof coffee," blended with fats like grass-fed butter, coconut oil, or coconut milk ($4-$6).
"We recommend it as a meal replacement," said Khoury."It's obviously calorically dense."
Feature also does a brisk meal-prep business, its offerings tailored to the same dietary preferences. Blocks of meals ordered online or in person are picked up on Mondays. Regularly $6 a meal, with no minimum, they're currently being offered at 10-for-$50 as a temporary introductory special.
INFO: Feature Meals, 598 Main St. Hours: 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday. Closed Saturday, Sunday. Phone: 845-7060.
