Boogie Down Bites: Lettuce Eat Inc

Posted: Updated:
PELHAM BAY -

A Bronx restaurant is putting an emphasis on fresh food with its gigantic salads and burgers topped with guac.

Lettuce Eat Inc on Crosby Avenue in Pelham Bay gets its name from a play on words for "Let Us Eat."

However, the restaurant is known for its large fresh lettuce salads and juicy burgers.

"Everything is fresh, I don't use any frozen meat," owner Wendy Marino says.

Marino and her staff say their most popular items are their burgers, one of which is topped with guacamole.

It takes a large 20/80 ground beef burger, onion, tomato, piles of pepper jack cheese and, of course, lettuce, guacamole and jalapenos all on a grilled bun.

Lettuce Eat also offers large personalized salads.
