Tale of the Tape

Some Healthy Competition. Literally.

After 25 consecutive meals of turkey, stuffing and turkey-stuffing pie...

You might not actually be opposed to a little kale today.

Enter Project Juice (left) and Seed + Salt—two new health-minded spots we’ve pitted against each other, tale-of-the-tape-style. (They’re both open now; see the slideshow here.)

The Scene
Project Juice: It’s like a tiny, modern Zen garden—complete with fake-grass mezzanine.
Seed + Salt: A white, minimalist space with long, rustic wooden tables, good for quick lunches and post-gym refueling.
Edge: Project Juice, by a mezzanine.

The Pedigree
Project Juice: A married team with a couple other juice places under their belts. (This is the first food-focused outpost.)
Seed + Salt: A journalist turned raw food enthusiast and a Brooklyn-native chef with an NYU degree in food politics.
Edge: Seed + Salt. Because the chef’s grandpa used to sell hot dogs on Coney Island.

The Food
Project Juice: Quick cold-pressed juices and to-go lunches like kelp-noodle pad thai and sunflower tu-no wraps (yup, that’s fake tuna—think raw vegan here).
Seed + Salt: Still no tacos. Think 72-hour granola, eggplant BLTs and beet burgers.
Edge: Project Juice. Because it’s next door to Mission Cheese and Tacolicious, if you’re still hungry.
