Tender Greens at UTC

Tender Greens opened this Saturday in the UTC mall. I have been there twice so far. The food is just as good as the food Point Loma location, which is to say, quite good, with what appear to be high-quality ingredients. Between us, my companion and I have had yellowtail on corn risotto with grilled vegetables, kale and salami salad, corn soup with caesar salad, and a salade nicoise with grilled (rare) tuna. We also had a pot of coffee and some shortbready dessert.

The yellowtail dish in particular was excellent. Caesar salad, alas, had too much dressing, but was otherwise very good. The lettuce was super-fresh and flavorful.

Portion sizes are quite large. It would be nice if they would offer an alternative of smaller portions, particularly of soups.

I was surprised to learn that they are a multicity chain of about eight restaurants, with locations in L.A. also.

Delighted to see improvement in the mostly dismal UTC food scene.
