Henbit is the new casual spin-off of Emmer & Rye at the Fareground food hall downtown, which also includes outposts from Dai Due, Contigo, Komé, Easy Tiger, and Antonelli’s. They serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner seven days a week, along with coffee, fresh pressed juices, and more cosmic-sounding drinks, like golden milk chai. If you stop by before work, try the sausage breakfast burrito or one of their fresh baked kolaches. And if you come for lunch or dinner, the short rib with sweet potatoes and the tomato and feta salad are two of our favorites.
