Fresh First, Fort Lauderdale FL | Merchant Profile

Staying true to their name, Fresh First has been providing quality, gluten free food for the past three years, gearing their menu towards health conscious individuals. Tarso and Eliana Teixeira prioritize providing a welcoming, organic experience and have done so successfully, with the help from their team. The couple has worked in the hospitality industry for fifteen years, and have translated that into their establishment. With a passion for food, Tarso and Eliana created Fresh First and haven’t looked back since, becoming a staple of the Fort Lauderdale area. The one hundred percent gluten free menu carries items that will cater to anyoneís eating restrictions. No matter vegan, vegetarian, celiac, or just seeking to eat something healthy, Fresh First has something to suit everyoneís taste. Almost all of their items are made in house, priding themselves on making their own mayo, hot sauce, bread, and even their chicken patties. No matter what item the customer requests, they can rest assured it is fresh and made to order.  A popular item, the Zucchini Puttanesca, is comprised of raw zucchini spaghetti, tossed with sprouted garbanzo beans, sprouted lentils, cherry tomatoes, red peppers, kalamata olives, and scallions in a garlic lemon sauce topped with capers. A more traditional item, the Grilled Chicken Sandwich, is a grilled chicken breast, roasted red pepper, spinach and mozzarella, which is a fan favorite. Fresh First also serves breakfast, bringing the menu full circle for their customers to enjoy. Their Key West omelette is worth trying, made with organic tofu, scrambled with avocado, tomato, and green onion, cilantro-lime sauce , served with flax bread. Fresh First sources all of their ingredients locally creating an original, natural experience. Their juices are fresh cold pressed, and the only soda they provide is naturally sweetened with agave. The smoothies are well known, and if their options don’t meet the customers needs, they are happy to add a substitute. Located at 1637 Southeast 17th Street, Fresh First is a must visit while in the area, and is sure to please.
