New salad bar in South Orange: don't bother

Jeremy Osner Sep 27, 2006 01:53 PM

A new shop opened in South Orange across from the train station called Terence Allen, which looked kind of promising -- they sell salads and wraps, and fresh produce. I tried it and advise you not to bother. It has the feel and flavor of a cafeteria; a really expensive cafeteria. It's too bad -- the location is really nice, the garden in back would be a really pleasant place to eat if the food were good. I hope they shift gears, the strategy right now seems to be if you charge people enough, they won't notice the food is bad.

    Good to hear your take on this place. There have been some raves on the Maplewood/SO board, but, reading between the lines, it doesn't really sound like a true chowhound place. I will try to check out Harrar first.

      I completely disagree. Excellent food, nice atmosphere, really convenient location (obviously). Prices may be a bit high but welcome to suburbia!
