Yesterday Daytona Beach got a little fresher with the February 20 opening of a new fast-casual Mexican restaurant Lime Fresh Mexican Grill. This popular concept restaurant, originally conceived in South Beach, has garnered a cult following from locals and celebrities alike throughout Miami, and continues its East Coast expansion plans. The grand opening yesterday, helped kick off the events of this year’s Daytona 500. The crowd enjoyed live music, fresh food and enticing drink specials along with giveaways for the local community. Miss Daytona Beach, Stephanie Chambers, was also on hand from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. to greet guests for the celebration of Lime Fresh’s 13th location here in Florida. Lime is a distinct departure from the kind of Mexican food that has been known for its high-fat content and over-processed ingredients. Instead, Lime offers a healthier alternative, made with fresh ingredients and prepared to order; it is also the first ever restaurant of its kind to prepare and serve only 100% Certified Humane® meats. If you happened to miss yesterday’s fiesta, don’t worry. Lime Fresh Mexican Grill will be open from 11 a.m. – 10 p.m., Monday through Sunday.
Famous for its signature blend of fresh, mouth-watering Mexican dishes, dynamic ambiance, stylized interiors and excellent service, Lime was originally conceived in 2004, to complement the vibrant and food-conscious culture of South Beach. Today, Lime delivers light Mexican-style cuisine using fresh produce and meats charbroiled on grills in an exhibition style kitchen. Additionally, all locations feature a signature house-made salsa bar with selections ranging from mild pico de gallo to the spicy habanero salsa, as well as 50 variations of custom hot sauces.
Diners have the option of choosing from a variety of guacamole flavors served with house-made tortilla chips, including the Classic Guac and the Gringo Guac, as well as the Housemade Queso Dip. Entrée favorites include the South Beach Burrito with chicken, jack and cheddar cheese, pico de gallo and shredded lettuce served on a low-carb tortilla; Flautas with chicken, organic black beans, corn, jack and cheddar cheese lightly fried in golden brown, soft yellow corn tortillas and served with a creamy avocado-ranch dipping sauce; and the Surfer Tacos with grilled Mahi Mahi, shredded cabbage, pico de gallo and a cool cilantro sauce.
