I used to live above NorthStar and ate there at least 1-2 times a week. The food is so good! There are a lot of healthy, delicious options. Some of my favorite items include the NorthStar burger, Village Salad, and Buddha Bowl.

Northstar offers some unique and healthy restaurant fare. Though a little pricey, this trendy place is a welcome change to the norm.

The options on the menu are great for a business lunch because of the wide range of options for guests. Each location has a unique dish. My favorite salad is at the Beechwold location - Beechwold Salad.
