Fans of healthful fare, take heed: there's a new spot in Uptown to get your fix. Located at 1101 Uptown Park Blvd., Suite C-6, the fast-casual newcomer is called Flower Child. This is the growing chain's first eatery in Houston.

Offering bowls, grains, greens and wraps, the menu, which clearly labels dishes that are gluten-free, vegetarian or vegan, features dishes like the Forbidden Rice bowl (black pearl, red japonica, snap pea, bok choy, broccoli, carrot, onion, toasted sesame, and red chili hoisin) and the Vietnamese Crunch salad (savoy cabbage, romaine, quinoa, tomato, bell pepper, pineapple, avocado, cashew, Thai basil and spicy lemongrass vinaigrette). You can add protein to any dish, including all-natural chicken, grass-fed steak, salmon and organic tofu.

There are also wraps and build-your-own plates. Pair your meal with seasonal lemonades, tap kombucha or a local Texas beer.
