Good food for those looking for late afternoon snack/early dinner.

There's a stretch of time between the end of lunch service and the beginning of evening restaurants opening that can be a no man's land of food options. Many eateries close down between 3:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m., so options become limited. King Street cafe The Daily wants to be there for patrons who may have skipped a meal/worked a lunch shift/need to pick up dinner with a new menu of healthy, vegetable-focused items served between 3:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. Operations director Randi Weinstein says:

We plan to offer a soup, a fresh made salad, and several toast options. Most likely, the majority of the entree type dishes will be "bowls" with different combinations of vegetables, grains, beans, seeds, nuts, fresh herbs, and lighter sauces. Tons of olive oil. Very little butter. No bacon fat. Fresh, simple, light, and clean. We want to keep the food very to-go friendly-things that will hold well on the drive home.

The Daily calls this their "PM Small Plate Service." Working with local farmers and products from their market, the offerings will be ever-changing. Below is a sample menu:
