With a little help from a medical doctor, a new healthy eating restaurant has opened in the Cherry Creek area. Many residents already enjoy the ability to walk through Cherry Creek and reach coffee shops, boutiques, galleries and restaurants without driving all over the area.

You must be warned, if you arrive during lunch or dinner, the restaurant tends to fill up fast. Dr. Andrew Weil helped make sure this restaurant opened when he partnered with a small Phoenix-based chain to bring healthier restaurant eating to Cherry Creek.
