Best Salad in NYC

Recently moved to the Gramercy/Murray Hill area and I am seeking out the best salads in this area, but please feel free to give me all your opinions on salad throughout Manhattan. I have eaten at all the typical lunch salad places, Chop't, Tossed, Just Salad, Cosi etc., while these places are satifying for a quick lunch, they dont really make the cut for dinner food fare...please share your thoughts.

  1. Starwich on E. 53rd St. makes nice, upscale salads.

    1. Perfect! Then you MUST try Organique...Best salads in the area. My all-time fave is Landmarc's grilled shrimp salad.

        I walk by Organique every day - now I have a reason to stop in - thanks!

      2. When i lived there i adored the Cobb Salad from Cinema diner. Huge too.

        1. I love the cobb salad at Route 66 Cafe, 56th and 9th. It's enormous and delicious, and their grilled chicken breast is always juicy and tender (hard to find, I think chicken breast is usually very dry). I also like the Phuket salad and Cobb salad at Island Burgers (51st and 9th, I believe). I've been ordering the grilled portobello mushroom salad from Tuscany (55th and 6th) for lunch a lot lately, and it's pretty good - they're generous with the mushrooms and other grilled vegetables, and they have an excellent house vinaigrette and salsa verde (I like to mix the two for a the perfect salad dressing).

          1. Petite Abeille has a good chicken salad.
