Yes, Whole Foods is a spot we endorse for actual meals, particularly lunch. Why? The fish bar. That’s right, head back to the seafood counter and get fresh fish tacos (they grill them to order). Plus, the sushi selection is always there for you and their barbeque is surprisingly good. All you have to do is avoid the constant madness that is the salad bar. Whole Foods is easy and predictable, and we sometimes like that in our lunch spots.
