I’ve been running on fumes the last few days and it was back to the work grind at 7am this morning so I was definitely looking forward to this healthy lunch at the new @originalchopshop in Las Colinas! It is the cutest little spot that has everything from açaí bowls and juices to salads, sandwiches and healthy quinoa bowls 🍓🍌🥗 (and of course I ruined all that and got a cookie. it was gluten free so that makes it healthy right?) 🤔I live in the area so I will definitely be eating here weekly - I’ve been needing a healthy spot like this nearby that’s also super cute with a patio! 🙏🏼 See more on my story 💙 http://liketk.it/2vut3 #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKunder50 #LTKsalealert #LTKunder100 #LTKstyletip #newspot #hosted

In the meantime, we’ve been keeping a running list of the restaurants that are open or plan to reopen soon, and we've indicated which ones have patios. Please note that we are making every effort to keep our restaurant list accurate. But with orders regarding occupancy being updated often, the information provided above is be subject to change. It's always a good idea to call or check social pages before heading out. 

Wear your mask. Keep your distance. Have fun & stay safe.
