Embrace the past at Lemonade, a literally souped-up stand, open for lunch and take away dinner.  The modern twist on a nostalgic concept is part lemonade stand, part grade-school cafeteria - come lunchtime, you'll grab a tray and slide it down the counter to examine your options.  Unlike those early years, though, you'll actually want to build a meal from what you see under the glass - you might find a Grilled Cheese with Ham and Quince on Pumpernickel, which could work with a Snap Pea and Edamame Salad and a Lemon Meringue Pie.  With numerous vegetable options, salads, braises and stews, there is no shortage of options to choose from. 

For more information, please visit Lemonade or call 626-304-7700.
