BY WPDH-FM – A new restaurant will be opening up where a beloved deli has stood abandoned for over a year and a half.

Vitality Bowls is a chain of restaurants that is dedicated to serving healthy superfoods. The restaurant specializes in acaí bowls, which blends acaí berries with organic granola and other superfood ingredients. Other menu items focus on antioxidant-rich items like smoothies, fresh juices, soups, salads and even paninis.

The restaurant brand was launched by a California couple who wanted to offer food that would be safe for their daughter who suffers from severe food allergies. As a result, all of the menu items at each location are made fresh in non-cross contamination kitchens to ensure that those with food allergies will feel safe eating at Vitality Bowls.

Most restaurant locations are out on the West Coast, but the chain is looking to plant their flag on our side of the country. With one location in Long Island, this will only be the second Vitality Bowls restaurant in New York.

Construction crews are hard at work on Route 9 in Wappingers Falls across from Kohl’s at the old Castaldo’s Deli. Last November the deli closed and has sat empty for over a year and a half. Now the location will soon reopen as the area’s first Vitality Bowls.

You can check out their full menu and, once the restaurant opens, even order online at the Vitality Bowls website.

COVID-19 information

As we diligently follow COVID-19 updates and developments from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), most Vitality Bowls locations remain open as our team closely follows all public health recommendations to keep our customers, employees and communities healthy and safe.

Our goal has always been to provide the most nutritious food possible to our customers, and we are dedicated to that mission now more than ever.

Some aspects of the Vitality Bowls experience have been modified, including some locations limiting dining experiences to take-out and delivery only. Please contact your local Vitality Bowls regarding in-store dining availability.

We are confident that we will get through this together as a community. In the meantime, Vitality Bowls is here for you, to provide healthy, nutritious meals for you and your family.
