Welcoming a steady stream of customers, Juicygreens held a soft (and tasty) opening last Thursday. "It's been a lot of fun getting started, and we're adding items every day," said Mike Lowney, who co-owns the business with his wife Ammy. He added they want to perfect everything and ensure their staff have the recipes down pat before they expand to serving the full menu, which will include arepas, quinoa bowls, toasts, acai bowls, smoothies and more. On Sunday, customers stopped in to check out JP’s newest restaurant. Several families enjoyed sitting in the elevated dining area and outside on the patio.
A family medical practitioner and a former Boston Public Schools high school teacher plan to open Juicygreens, a juice bar and cafe later this year in part of the old Harvest Co-op space on South Street. "I've come to realize that there's a lot more to health than medicine," said Mike Lowney, a primary care physician specializing in osteopathic medicine at the family-run Lowney Medical practice in Hyde Park. "Food is the start of what we put in our bodies." "We wanted a fast, casual healthy place to eat and couldn't find one, so we said, 'Let's make one,'" said Ammy Lowney. The married couple's menu will include cold-pressed juice made on-site, 100 percent real fruit smoothies, nut mylks (non-dairy milks), acai bowls, coffee, salads, soaked oats, Colombian corn arepas and a toast bar (with options such as the very trendy avocado toast). Customers will also be able to add supplements to their juice like B-12 and anti-inflammatory options.
