salad: caesar, cobb, and chopped

Deborah | Aug 30, 2000 01:03 AM

Where can I find a caesar where I won't be warned off by a menu that announces:

'eggless dressing'
'with chicken or shrimp'
'no anchovies!!'

or by a waiter who replies:

'they're in the dressing, but you can't really taste them'

'do you want cheese on that?'

or takes a supercilious attitude because he tosses tableside, the 'authentic' way

or by a plate that arrives cold, rusty, dressing on the side or 'garnished' with tomatoes????

Answer: in my dreams?

As a new (2 years, but I've only now been subpoenaed for my NY license) and only recently less reluctant Angeleno, I'd also appreciate some advice on chopped and cobb. Are hard-boiled eggs really mandatory??
