Nick the Greek

Nick the Greek is now open at 2034 Broadway Street. It’s the first Peninsula location for the small South Bay chain started in 2014 by three cousins named Nick. Gyros, souvlaki and fresh falafel are among the menu items at Nick the Greek. “The menu is basically Greek street food — what you find in Greece,” Owner Nick Tsigaris said. Check out their menu here and give them a try the next time you’re in downtown Redwood City.

Origins Juicery

Located at 2070 Broadway, Origins Juicery is a cold-pressed juice bar that provides a fresh, all-natural, and unique take on what it means to be a juice “bar”. At Origins Juicery, they prepare all of their drinks in-house daily to ensure that they are at their freshest.

A set menu of 10 drinks, called Original Blends, is available for those looking to pop in and grab something on the go. For those looking to take the adventurous route, they offer a personalized juicing experience in the form of Pressed to Spec bottles. Just mark your fruit and vegetable selections right on the side of the bottle and have your custom cold-pressed juice prepared for you on the spot. Stop by to sample what they have to offer. For more details go here.

Go Fish Poke Bar

Go Fish Poke Bar is now open at 823 Hamilton Street in downtown Redwood City. A simple poke bowl consists of a base, your choice of fish (or tofu for vegetarians) toppings, and sauce. At Go Fish Poke, Executive Chef and Founder Jerome Ito begins with the simple poke bowl and expands it to a greater dimension. You make each selection: from crab to tuna, atop a base of rice, fresh greens or chips, and add a house made sauce. No matter the combination created, each ingredient is highlighted and every bowl is balanced. Check out their menu and stop by to discover the delicious world of poke! For details go here.
