Fresca on Addison Restaurant Review: When it started, it was like “bring your daughter to work day” every day at Fresca, where the inimitable Jimmy Sneed (who carved out his larger-than-life reputation with the late Jean-Louis Palladin at The Frog and The Redneck) and his talented offspring Jenna make eating your vegetables fun. In fact, that’s what you’ll have to eat at this take-out/delivery sweet spot. It’s not that they’re veg-heads (well, Jenna’s vegan, Jimmy’s not), but when fresh, local, organic produce can be turned into curried butternut squash soup with coconut milk and toasted almonds; roasted broccolini and white bean spread sandwiches; and piping hot pizza straight out of the brick oven, you won’t even miss the meat. Life here is ultra casual --- you order at the counter and the food is delivered to your table --- but the quality of ingredients and care in preparation make it feel first class. There’s beer and wine, too. It’s really Jenna’s baby as Jimmy has since opened a pizzeria down the street, but her daughter is often here now, too.
