Can a juice bar be altruistic? After one sip of Gordon Kindlon’s inspired combinations, you may find yourself signing up for the Peace Corps, or at least reading up on recycling, solar power, and green building. Kindlon and wife and business partner Consuelo Casarotto are true do-gooders. They met while working for the U.N. in Afghanistan and designed their space (with help from “green” architect Peter Lynch) to be environmentally sensitive. Sip on the better-than-yoga carrot-parsley-lemon juice while Kindlon educates you on the virtues of low VOC paint and compact fluorescent lightbulbs. Try a pear-apple-ginger juice while learning how to reuse building remnants in your home, as Kindlon did with pieces rescued from the no-longer Peace Church in Washington Square Park. Unless you’re a die-hard health nut, you may find smoothies made with flax powder or dried fruit a little too good for you to taste good. But then again, the ginger tempeh sandwich on biodynamic, wheat-free bread proves surprisingly tasty with its tangy pickled radishes and cilantro. Fueled with renewable source electricity, Energy Star appliances, and low-flow faucets, Urban Spring provides food for thought as well as for sustenance.
