Fresh To Order, also known as f2o, enhances the expectations of today’s discriminating diners by fusing delicious, “fine” food with a laid-back, warm environment to create a new type of niche dining: “fast-fine.” As visionary founder and president Pierre Panos describes it, fast-fine is “incredible food, service and an unparalleled dining environment in under ten minutes for around $10.”
Fast-fine dining appeals to a vast, inclusive niche of restaurant-goers who want the fine dining experience of bold flavors, innovative combinations and fresh ingredients, delivered in a way that won’t make them go broke. Inspired by Panos’s family-owned fine-dining experience in his native South Africa and the American styles of Stoney River Legendary Steaks, f2o’s menu is filled with tantalizing, high-end dishes presented with passionate attention to beauty and detail. Some of the most popular chef-inspired dishes on the menu resemble items from a five-star restaurant, such as the Brown Sugar Roasted Pork Loin and the Grilled Salmon with Black Bean Orange Sauce. F2o also offers other crowd-pleasures, including a variety of elegant sandwiches like the Salmon Panini with Roasted Corn Relish and Tarragon Aioli, and fresh salads, like the Spinach Salad with Blue Cheese Crumbles, Strawberries, and Seasonal Fruit.
However, f2o doesn’t just focus on taste and presentation. They also make sure all the food is healthful and nutritious. On their website, you can research the nutritional facts and qualities of every dish and side and, with a conveniently-placed calculator, calculate the best choice of plate combo, in both deliciousness and nutritional value. And with f2o’s large, varied gluten-free menu, you can enjoy the same rich, exquisite dishes, even if gluten intolerance usually keeps you at home.
F2o is also committed to the entire fast-fine dining experience, with warm accent colors and intriguing textures that characterize its welcoming and contemporary atmosphere. The experience is, like the food, simultaneously classy and casual, modern and accessible, smart and comforting—all prepared in under 10 minutes.
