Be Leaf might not have the name recognition of some of the other healthy lunch spots in town, but it’s sneakily established itself as a good option to get a salad or healthy wrap. The Loop location at Wacker and Washington makes it ideal for a work lunch, and the ability to customize anything is a nice touch. Feel free to go the salad route or turn any option into a grain bowl or wrap.
