        1. re: snoobie

          To build on Chica's list, here are some on the more pricier side which should be an even "Greater" Salad experience in tastiness (and ambiance for the last 3):

          Spago - Californian(?) - Beverly Hills
          It's tough to ignore Wolfgang when he's got 6 "Large" Salads - $16 to $25

          La Cachette - French - Century City-ish
          7 Luncheon "Entree" Salads - $22 to $42

          And finally, where does L.A.'s most ambitious, extravangant, over-the-top, ect. salad reside?

          1. re: snoobie

            No prob! In re to Spago (listed above), I recommend the lobster cobb. :)

        2. Hugo's has good salads too.

          1. Clementine

            1. For sure the chinese chicken salad at the California Chicken Cafe, I get that for lunch and sometimes for take out dinner at least once a week. Im not sure if it's filling enough to be dinner but since the portions are pretty generous, Lucky Devil's has organic greens and their dressings are very tasty.

              1. Beacon.

                www.beacon-la.com

                1. Cafe Flore
                  Beverly Hills on Robertson

                  Inexpensive (less than $10), Very fresh, large portions and
                  fantastic Spinach and strawberry salad.

                    A little out of your zone, but 26 Beach Cafe on Washington Blvd. just west of Lincoln in Marina Del Rey has some of the best salads around. The house blend salad is my all-time fave.
