Good salads in Union Square area

Shawn Aug 27, 2007 04:36 PM

Going for a doctor's appointment in the Union Square area tomorrow, and would like to stop for lunch and have a good salad and a glass of wine afterwards. Any suggestions for a pleasant place with interesting salads would be appreciated!

    More out of the way but I LOVE the warm chicken meatball and arugula sald at Penelope with a glass of Fruilli.

      I like the salads at The Coffee Shop. If it is nice and there are no lines you can sit outside (the good eye candy is an added bonus). Heartland Brewery is a chain, there food is fairly consistent and they have a few decent (not sure what interesting means to you) salads. Both these places are reasonable (you didn't give a price range).

        Price isn't really an issue, but since I'm really only looking for a salad, I don't expect lunch to break the bank.

        If the weather's nice, hit the salad bar at Whole Foods and sit in Union Square. Then find a nice bar where you can sip your wine.

          If atmosphere isn't too important (there's just a small seating area), I would suggest Chop't on 17th St. between Broadway and 5th. I love the variety of toppings and dressings available and they have a great pita/wrap-style bread that they serve. There are many suggestions for salads but you can also make your own. As the name implies, they chop it all for you.
