Smile To Go has a few locations around the city, and they’re all perfect for when you want to pick up a small sandwich or a cookie with exactly four large chocolate chips on top. They also serve rotisserie chicken and vegetable sides like kale salad and roasted carrots, and this location at the Freehand Hotel has a couple of big tables where you can sit while you eat. So if you live or work in the area, this is a very easy kind-of-healthy option. It can get pricey, but the food is better than the majority of things you buy over a counter.
