craving restaurants serving super fresh, clean, simple flavors

shirlotta | Jun 7, 2007 12:16 PM

ever since a few weeks ago when i had a slivered sugar snap salad with tiny arugula and a simple dressing of lemon and olive oil at lupa i have been craving similarly simple, super fresh flavors. it was so good! the sweet crispness of the sugar snaps, the woodsiness of the arugula, the brightness of the lemon... i'm especially craving these tastes now that summer is starting, and with the abundance of local produce.

i'm not thinking specifically restaurants serving local produce, but places that serve simple dishes that really accentuate super fresh ingredients. preferably downtown, any cuisine and any price range. a place where, you know, you take a bite and feel like you have a bit of spring or summer in your mouth. mmm.

thanks, hounds!
