Experts on casual, quick and healthy Greek and Mediterranean flavors, the Market Grille Cafe family recently expanded its northwest Vegas presence with a second location on Lake Mead Boulevard, just off U.S. Highway 95. Convenience is a theme here, so a prototypical selection is the pomegranate chicken wrap: crispy romaine lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes, red onion, feta cheese and basmati rice in a spinach tortilla with tender chicken simmered in a sweet, earthy sauce, plus a dash of yogurt dill sauce drizzled in. Accompanied by a small Greek salad—with killer balsamic vinaigrette—for $8.25, it satisfies without overstuffing you like the Chipotle burritos next door, thereby becoming the go-to post-workout meal in my 'hood. Another positive: The food is tasty enough for me to not mind when they shout "Opa!" when I come through the door
