With three vegetarians, a handful of meat lovers and our ever-evolving diet crazes and contests, it is not often that the Zapwater office can decide on a lunch spot that suits everyone. Thankfully, Protein Bar has saved the day! (And our waistlines!) Protein Bar recently opened its second Chicago location, conveniently sitting in the heart of River North at 353 N. Clark St.

If you haven’t heard, Protein Bar offers customizable high-protein blended drinks, bowls, fresh-made chili, wraps and salads and the signature PROTEIN BAR-RITOs. Its one-of-a-kind dishes and drinks fill you up without filling you out, and we can honestly say it tastes amazing. With quick service, an expansive hearty and healthy menu and two more locations set to open soon, it is impossible not to love Protein Bar.
