"The name is a joke. Beefsteak refers not to meat but to tomatoes at yet another great idea from prolific chef and restaurateur José Andrés. “I believe the future is vegetables and fruit,” the Spanish native told “60 Minutes” five years ago. Putting his money where his mouth is this year, Andrés rolled out this fast-casual restaurant in Foggy Bottom, where customers line up before a field of greens, grains and garnishes and task an army of assemblers to whip up custom-tailored combos.

This rapidly-expanding local chain with locations in the DC area, New York, Philadelphia, and Boston, offers healthy, good-quality salads. With its emphasis on fresh, local ingredients and calories posted on the menu, it's one of our picks for healthy "cheap eats."

The last word from Washingtonian is this badly outdated review of the original Georgetown location. The chain has expanded up the East Coast and hosts a yearly music festival.
