Good Fast Food

Mark Bittman writes about his dream of good fast food: healthy, cheap, real food. So far, he has yet to find it, though he cites some places that come close, like Lyfe Kitchen, Veggie Grill, and Tender Greens, all of which I've been to, incidentally (there's a Lyfe Kitchen near the Flipboard office in Palo Alto).

Bittman made me chuckle with a term he coined for restaurants that are just one step up from the McDonald's, Subway, and Taco Bells of the world. He refers to the Shake Shack, Five Guys, Starbucks, and Pret a Manger's of the world as Nouveau Junk.
