Favorite Salads in Boston?
Looking for a place with a great salad- downtown or surrounding towns
I like the salads at Fireplace Grill (not sure if they offer them at dinner but always find them at lunch) in Brookline, including their version of Cobb Salad and their duck confit salad - like the frisee salad at ESK and the vietnamese salads (shrimp and chicken) at Le's and Sunrise Cafe in Dorchester. Strip T's does a fabulous romaine and oxtail salad.
if you do a search, you will easily find a long thread on this. We stay loyal and appreciative of the eva's greens with rabbit, smoked cheddar,pecans.... at EVOO. And, very simple, but you can't beat the quantity and price ($4) for the Wicked Small Caesar at Strip T's. p.s. small? NOT. And I have always thought that Philip's biggest strength at East by Northeast- is his innovative Asian salads. Kale with Smoked Tofu, Edamame, Smoked Trout, Lemon Sesame Cream anyone?yummmm. in fact, it's hard to be satisfied with the same old same old salads you see elsewhere- after you've enjoyed Philip's creativity.
