Salad topped with fried egg ... where?

Looking for recommendations for a salad (warm or not) that's topped with a fried egg.

Don't care if it's spinach, lentils, romaine, etc. Just want it to be good, and topped with a fried egg.

  1. Most salads that come with an egg (for instance at Waterloo and City in Mar Vista their Caesar) do a poached egg. That said, W&C does a smoked salmon terrine with a fried egg on top so I can't imagine that would turn you down if you asked them to substitute the fried egg for the poached.

    1. A classic frisee aux lardons typically comes with a fried (or at least poached or basted) egg on top; I had a great one at Father's Office a couple years ago but not sure if it's on their menu year-round.

      1. served only at their sunday brunch,
        go to cafe del rey
        grilled asparagus salad wild mushrooms, fried egg, reggiano, black truffle vinaigrette

          Whoa, that sounds great. Is it still offered even though we are not in asparagus season?

          1. re: ipsedixit

            CDR is pretty good about keeping their online menu current, and it is listed on the website right now...but i'm sure WG can confirm for you since she's their official CH ambassador :)

              No doubt.

              Not doubting w'gal, just wondering how CDR is sourcing their asparagus.

              1. re: ipsedixit

                dunno their source, all i know is that they still offered it as of a couple of weeks ago or so.

        2. have had the frisee/poached egg on salad @ comme ca and it was fine, although not especially wife ordered a similar salad at church & state and loved it...once in a while i've had asparagus w/fried egg (usually duck eggs) but only as a special and i would have to stretch to call it a salad...i don't know anyone who has that on their everyday menu

          1. Mike & Anne's, in South Pasadena, does a very nice version of salad Lyonnaise (frisee, endive, lardons, poached egg) for dinner.

              Indeed it does, but I need a fried egg.

              Thanks anyhow.
