(April 27, 2018) Fresh juices, smoothies, kabobs, pita sandwiches, falafel and other Mediterranean flavors are homemade at NutriEatery on Route 50 in West Ocean City.

After opening on April 9, NutriEatery has operated as a carryout service with just a few counters, although owners Sammy and Elana Bitton plan to add indoor and outdoor seating soon.

“NutriEatery is something my husband came up with after making juices at home,” Elana Bitton said. “The community is very supportive of what we offer here. They say not many places have the fresh and unique food [served at NutriEatery.] We taste tested at home and wanted to bring it here.”

A juice bar offers Greek yogurt and fresh fruit smoothies, as well as protein shakes. NutriEatery also has parfaits, fresh fruit cups, acai bowls and cold or hot Segafredo Coffee from Italy.

“People love our green juice and smoothies,” Bitton said. “There is zesty orange, or beet and apple juices.”

Customers have a number of platters to choose from, including falafel, grilled turkey or salmon, beef, chicken, chicken zucchini, and veggie kabobs, a black bean burger, and pita sandwiches.

“The falafels are really good,” Bitton said. “The chicken pitas and kabobs are very popular, [and] the black bean burger is a big seller. Everyone loves our homemade hummus. It is made fresh every day.”

A range of unique salads include quinoa, tabouli, Greek, tuna, salmon Mediterranean, goat cheese, and grilled veggies and chicken.

“We have good soups, baba ganoush and the vegetable rice has been a big hit,” Bitton said. “We also have desserts. Everyone loves our butternut squash and sweet potatoes topped with pomegranate, goat cheese, toasted almond and mint with some sweet sauce on top. It melts in your mouth.”

Fresh baked goods from a bakery in New York are also available, in addition to gyros, baked potatoes, and several American options including fresh cut fries and cheesesteaks.

“We have food for people who like Mediterranean, vegetarians, people who like to eat healthy, or just like to eat as well,” Bitton said. “Everything is delicious and fresh. It is a different place trying to combine the juices, coffee and Mediterranean food.”

The Bittons also own Flavors of Italy on Sixth Street and the Boardwalk, which has been operating in Ocean City for almost 25 years.

Visit NutriEatery on Route 50, between Hooters and the Verizon store. Currently, the eatery is open every day from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.

“We have great customer service in a friendly environment,” Bitton said. “Give us a try in our convenient location.”
