Local Hero, Tender Greens

We just returned from an eating trip to Brooklyn NY. The minute the plane touched down, we raced to Tender Greens. After all that hip winter food, we craved fresh and green. What Pete Balestieri and his crew do is equal to, but of course different than, anything we tasted in Brooklyn. Every ingredient in the salad we had-- kumquat, orange, candied pecans, chicken, romaine, goat cheese-- was perfection. Even the chicken was stand alone. LOVE the great leaves of lettuce and the size of their entree salads. Yes, Honkman. This is man salad, and god, we're lucky to have it.

Can't wait for UTC, and I hear rumors of the airport.
