It's really not your fault that you haven't noticed it.

It's on the second floor, which you reach by elevator, and it's inside a fitness club.

But now that you know, you've got to go.

Owner of Café Shu, Hana makes homemade dishes that focus on healthy, local and organic ingredients.

The difference here is healthy is darn tasty, too.

Seats are five stools right in the hallway of the club beside a window into a workout room. (At least you'll be eating healthy while not exercising.)

Rich Hummus Wraps (from scratch) with sprouts and avocado combined with the Soup of the Day ($10) is a great lunch option, as is the Daily Grain Salad, which today happens to be a velvety Peanut Shirataki (tofu) Noodle Salad with carrots and baby bok choy ($6.99).

What a great New Year's resolution - you can finally say you're going to the gym for lunch!

It's not a complete lie.
