Why are we reviewing a corporate food chain? We typically make a point of critiquing only local businesses. But sometimes big changes start here. In this case, the Springs is a trial market for Pita Pit’s reinvented menu (as of Oct. 1). Disclosure done, let’s eat.

We skip Thai, Hawaiian and Buffalo options for chicken pesto and bacon cheeseburger pitas (both $7.39), both on wheat. The former’s a green enough bite, with plenty of veg brightness from romaine lettuce, roasted red peppers and red onions, and the pesto is fine, though we can’t detect menu-listed artichoke hearts anywhere. We’re told the latter tastes like “a Wendy’s classic double with about 1,000 fewer calories,” which seems a reasonable estimate. The chopped steak’s tough, though, and each bite is dominated by pickle, yellow mustard and onion, though some meatiness does read. If you want Subway with less bread, Pita Pit ain’t bad, but local still wins.
