Step away from the heavy comfort food you may turn to in the winter and opt for a summery and light meal at Playa Bowls, which is celebrating its grand opening at 19 Church Street in Montclair today.

Playa Bowls started down the Jersey Shore, first in Belmar and then opening other locations in Long Branch, Ocean Grove and made it’s way north to New Brunswick and now Montclair. The menu features smoothie bowls ($9-$10) — Coconut, Acai, Pitaya, and Green Bowls — which are basically a thicker smoothie that you eat with a spoon instead of suck own with a straw, with added toppings, like granola or chunks of coconut on top. Traditional smoothies, oatmeal, organic soups, and other healthy items, are also on the menu.

Stopped by on opening day to take out a dozen empanadas. Very welcoming space, especially with the storefront glass open on a warm spring day and sidewalk tables available; and, the staff were warm and engaged. The empanadas are soft and pastry-like, rather than the harder crisper type. They got a thumbs up from the Morales family, who loves them a good empanada!
