A mostly vegetarian restaurant made its debut this morning in Downtown Boston. Mighty Love Food (155 Milk St., Boston) opened at 7 a.m. on Friday, August 31, filling the neighborhood with vegetable and grain bowls, sandwiches, and smoothies. The restaurant aims to serve “nutrient-dense” dishes by chef Jerome Picca while encouraging “smart food choices,” and aside from a little bit of shrimp and chicken, the menu is meat-free (and many of the dishes are vegan).
The restaurant sources as much produce as possible from the New England area. As the local growing season winds down, Picca says he will source from organic and integrated pest control farms from outside the immediate area.
Breakfast options at Mighty Love Food include steel cut oats and grains with a choice of berries, maple syrup, granola, and other toppings, while lunch options enter the realm of salads, grain bowls, and sandwiches, all customizable. There are items like curried tofu, roasted cauliflower, sumac-roasted pears, and vegetarian meatballs available on bowls or sandwiches, and the restaurant also serves fruit and vegetable smoothies. Mighty Love Food also emphasizes scratch-made accompaniments for its dishes, including kimchi, pickles, sauces, and dressings.
Like many other restaurants downtown, Mighty Love Food is operating on weekdays only, serving breakfast and lunch from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
