Friday Food Porn: Honeygrow, Coming Soon To Center City

Honeygrow–the new fast-casual stir-fry-and-salad concept going into the former Pita Pit space at 1601 Sansom Street–is currently living behind plywood and scheduled for a mid-May opening. But one thing that is ready to go? The menu, which has been designed both by owner Justin Rosenberg and consultant/man-about-town Shola Olunloyo.

One of the basic building blocks of the Honeygrow experience is a touch-screen ordering system built for the iPad generation, with lovely pictures, swipe ability and a smart system that remembers each guest’s three previous orders and will grant them a free meal on the 10th swipe of a credit or debit card. All of this will allow customers to custom-design their own meals from the ground up. The only thing missing? Robots to put everything together–though it wouldn’t surprise me if Rosenberg was working on that, too.

In the meantime, some of those “lovely pictures” mentioned above have made their way into our hands. And they just seemed perfect for a nice round of Foobooz Friday Food Porn.

Another excuse to practice your chopstickin’ at lunch
