Epicerie Boulud dirty lettuce

GallopingGargoyles | Jul 31, 2014 07:22 AM

I know Epicerie Boulud gets mixed reviews but I've always liked it as an occasional treat, despite the price. I just really like that they have items that are relatively healthy but have a richness to them so I never feel like I'm just eating diet food.

However, I think I finally have to give it up…the lettuce on my side salad was rife with grit and dirt! I'm pretty easy going, but I can't stand it when eateries (especially $$$ ones) just aren't doing simple due diligence type stuff. Am I missing something…is it ever okay to serve lettuce like that?

So, while I may have recommended it in the past…I do NOT recommend going there anymore.

EDIT: for spelling, thanks H. Manning.
