Named “Best Lunch of Charlotte 2009,” Crisp features fresh chopped salads, sandwiches, soups, and pizzas at all three of its Charlotte locations. The menu includes a variety of unique proteins, including pork tenderloin, several types of fish, and tofu, so every palette and dietary need is sure to be satisfied. Patrons can choose to create their own salads or select one of the many delicious combinations from the menu. I ordered the Shrimp Caesar Salad, and in addition to the freshness and quality of the ingredients, I was extremely impressed that the shrimp were cooked to order, which is not the norm in many to-go restaurants. Located next to Charlotte Running Company and near Freedom Park, the restaurant provides a great healthy meal option post-run. Although salads are on the pricier side for similar restaurants, the portions are large and the ingredients are fresh, justifying the cost.
