The Daily Market, a restaurant that describes itself as specializing in healthy deli cuisine, has opened at 307 Main St. inside the City Market.

“We want to be an extension of your own kitchen,” owner Hope Dillon said in a statement.

“We aim to simplify the process of eating well at home or at work and make it affordable enough for daily consumption.”

The Daily Kitchen offerings include soups, salads, hot and cold sandwiches, daily specials and prepared foods to go, according to a press release announcing its opening.

The menu contains many fresh takes on old standards including a grilled cheese sandwich with bacon, apple and caramelized onion on sourdough.

The grab-and-go section will feature an assortment of salads including a lentil and broccoli combination and a garden cobb salad with sweet potato and green goddess dressing.

The Daily Kitchen is located at 307 Main in the northwest corner of the City Market arcade.

Dillon is particularly excited about stocking the prepared food case with an assortment of appetizers and snack items, soups, salads, sandwiches, entrees, sides, and desserts, according to the release.

Her personal favorite is the Mushroom Asada made with a roasted portobello, avocado, black beans, tomato, wild rice, and a lime jalapeno vinaigrette.

She also recommends the Curry Chickpea & Chicken, a flavorful dish made with roasted chicken, chickpeas, cabbage, raisins, cilantro, almonds, quinoa, and spinach with curry-yogurt dressing.

Dillon said she opened her new place in the City Market because it “was a fun place to be.”

In addition to healthy, affordable eating, Dillon is also focused on sustainability and has incorporated various aspects into the concept such as using recyclable takeout containers, furnishing the space with recycled wood, and featuring local vendors in the restaurant.

A special meet and greet opening is planned for Wednesday from 5- to 7 p.m.

Regular Daily Kitchen hours are 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Saturday, 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. Sunday.
