Mosaic District continues to heat up with new retail openings and announcements.
Alex and Ani Jewelry Store opened its doors June 14, offering a unique collection of eco-friendly accessories that adorn the body, enlighten the mind, and empower the spirit.
Designer Carolyn Rafaelian aims to incorporate deep symbolism in each piece so that the wearer can express their individuality. Through her work, Rafaelian hopes she can help others learn to value themselves and find positive energy from within, instead of always seeking energy externally.
In addition to the individual bangles, necklaces, earrings, and rings, the Rhode-Island based brand has various collections catered to specific groups. The collections range from the armed forces, described as heroic, patriotic, and selfless, to Graduation 2013, which reflects the ideas of adventure, success, and possibility. The inspiration behind these collections is to instill pride in each person for who they are, whether that be a recent graduate, a volunteer in the army, or a member of a national sorority.
And, it was just announced with much excitement, that True Food Kitchen will be coming to Mosaic District next summer. Focused on healthy foods, the restaurant aims to pair popular cuisine trends with nutrient-rich foods. The restaurant was developed in partnership with best-selling wellness author, Dr. Andrew Weil, who endorses an anti-inflammatory diet.
“You don’t have to be a die-hard Yogi to dine at True Food Kitchen” the True Food Kitchen website explains. “You need only a desire to give your body nutrients, and your palate something memorable.”
This will be the restaurant’s first East Coast location. True Food Kitchen joins Mosaic District's hot dining scene, alongside Cava Mezze Grill, Cyclone Anaya's, Dolcezza Gelato, Gypsy Soul, Le Pain Quotidien, Matchbox Vintage Pizza, Red Apron Butcher, sweetgreen, and Taylor Gourmet.
