When Bo Kim calls Yorganic a healthy dining alternative, he really means it.

“We knew there was a void to fill in the Lower Manhattan lunch scene,” said Kim, the store’s co-owner. He’s also a licensed pharmacist, which helps explain the store’s sincere devotion to its craft.

No fillers or preservatives are used and everything from the rice bowls to the salad and juice bars to the frozen yogurt is organic and locally sourced.

Yorganic, which has locations in Hanover Square and on Greenwich Street near Tribeca, even offers free health consultations and is making inroads with the unlikeliest of health enthusiasts.

“We’ve got kids who come in and create their own rice bowls and even salads,” said co-owner and head chef Shawn Reilly. “That’s the greatest reward.”
