Mounds of fresh fruit line the back walls of these health-conscious juice bars, where the drink menus read like a nutritious cocktail list, from wheatgrass shots to nourishing concoctions that would impress a seasoned mixologist. Smoothies range from refreshing (Pomegranate) to rich (Peanut Butter Split). Ingredients bring a global flavor: The Tropical Mangosteen smoothie makes Generation one of the few city spots serving the Southeast Asian fruit; some hot blends are based on Organic Yerba Maté tea from South America. A rotating array of organic soups are made daily, so while sandwiches and salads taste fresh for being pre-made, they lack the excitement of the liquid assets. If you’re craving something you can’t slurp, try the especially moist pumpkin muffins made with soy protein.Recommended Dishes
