Ten Fruits Now Open in Coral Gables: Hemp Milk, Dragonfruit, and Acai Bowls
Ten Fruits, downtown's uber-popular eatery and juice bar, has just opened a new location at 2516 Ponce de Leon Boulevard in Coral Gables. Fresh-pressed juices and acai bowls oughta be a welcome addition to a neighborhood chock full of steakhouses and pork joints.

The new spot, just steps from Miracle Mile, has a lengthy menu of health-conscious choices, from juice cleanses and whole wheat waffles, to smoothies and Greek yogurt. We got the skinny on the just-opened eatery and tried a couple of their newest items, including hemp milk. Yum. Check out the deets after the jump.
The Ten Fruits team (co-owners David Polinksy and Alexander Vazquez) is dogmatic about freshness, so all juices are made to order -- pasteurization is not an option. Ingredients like acai, pomegranate, chia seeds, and other exotic additions are all sourced by Vasquez, a Peruvian juice-master.

"Juicing is really complicated. People don't appreciate how technical it actually is, so it was great to have gone through that process downtown; to learn every single step because it's all about quality control," Polinsky said.
The team's commitment to edible excellence has earned them a loyal following in downtown (and some killer Yelp reviews). They hope to garner an equally enthusiastic reception at their new locale.
"People are excited. Everybody who came through this morning was like, 'Oh, this is what I want!'" added Vasquez.
