WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM 18 UCW November 15-21, 2023 The Salad Box & Some adds more flavor to downtown by AMBER LITTLE Downtown Fayetteville is steadily growing with new businesses occupying storefronts on what seems to be a monthly basis. e newest addition is e Salad Box & Some, located at 132 Person Street. Offering a host of selections for breakfast, lunch and brunch, the restaurant is looking to be the next "go-to" spot for those who live and work in the downtown area. Along with familiar favorites like pancakes, omelets and salads, the restaurant will also offer unique bites that visitors can only find in their kitchen. A few menu offer- ings that owners hope will become staples are the salmon bites, porkchop bites, and a loaded breakfast potato. e Salad Box & Some is a vision realized by owners Tonya McNeill and Robb Barber. "Originally, Tonya had an operating business called the Salad Box. It was all things salad and related. So the "and some" is actually kind of me. It's the additional items we have, such as the brunch menu. We have that because this location is a little bit larger than the original location and we wanted to be able to incorporate the com- munity a little bit more. We do have an 'in the box side' and that will be the salads and then we have the 'out of the box' side which would be the pancake sandwiches," co-owner Robb Barber said. Barber also said they have something for everyone, even those not watching the calorie intake. "Pancake sandwiches…and we are trying to do this fried cheesecake thing." Originally located on Murchison Road, e Salad Box made its move downtown earlier in the year, positioning itself among the best of the best of Downtown Fayetteville's restaurants, a move co-owner Barber said was essential in making the business, its new menu and name, successful. "With us being on this side of downtown, I think this side is going to turn into a very excit- ing side and that will not only help us, but the businesses around us. Being a part of the Cool Springs District and being a part of the commu- nity is always dope," he said. With the move and new name, came a new look. Patrons are met from the front door with vibrant colors from the counters to the tables, all thanks to local artist, Damien Mathis of Dmathi- sphere Gallery LLC. A visual experience in every nook, Barber took great care in how the space looks. "We definitely came together… when I chose the colors, everybody was looking like, 'that's not going to look right,' and then we started talk- ing. e writing on the wall is hardly ever seen in Fayetteville. You want to make it welcoming to the young ladies." e aesthetic of e Salad Box & Some will surely bring patrons back for the photo opportunities and food. ose interested in viewing the menu or just taking a look can find them on Facebook at https://www.facebook. com/eSaladBoxRestaurant/. ey also hope to have online ordering and mimosas available soon.
