Get your green on.
It looks too good to be healthful. The "mental lentil" collard wrap ($16) at Choices Café is crammed with black beans, lentils, onion, pico de gallo, bell pepper, avocado, plantain, and vegan cheese. Collard greens replace the wheat tortilla. The wrap is vibrant, its colorful filling stacked like sand art in a bottle.

Sitting in this vegan restaurant's sun-drenched dining room, you can see Guarapo Organic Juice Bar across the way. Drive five minutes south on Biscayne Boulevard and you'll come across Mi Vida Café, Metro Organic Bistro, and, on Saturdays, the Upper Eastside farmers' market. Continue south and find the Honey Tree, a health food market and cafeteria.

Choices Café is the latest addition to the neighborhood. The restaurant already boasts a location near Brickell. But with these new digs, it's become clear: The Upper Eastside is the place to go for health-driven fare.
