Just 16 days ago, we were stoked about our resolutions to exercise more, lower our stress levels, and eat healthier — and if you're like us, you might be losing a little momentum at this point. But this year, we're determined to stick with our guns at least until spring, so we're pretty pumped about the new Energy Kitchen location in Dupont. Offering up a menu where everything is baked, steamed, or grilled — never fried — and cooked to order, the New York-based chain specializes in food that gives you major go-power. The usual healthy suspects are here, like salads, wraps, and smoothies, but you can also choose from 11 different burgers — when was the last time that happened at your regular health-food joint? Top off your lunch with a side of baked sea salt fries to feel like you're really cheating — even though they're just 91 calories. Feeling motivated already, right?
Where: 1901 L Street NW; 202-833-3505.
