Most imaginative Cobb Salad in Manhattan?

I really enjoy salads, and I just had a really interesting interpretation of the Cobb at Stone Park Cafe in Brooklyn that came with this sort of vegetarian Scotch egg that was deep-fried in bread crumbs but nice and yolky inside, sitting on top of the other usual accoutrements like bacon, chicken and avocado.

Anything similar in Manhattan?

I think WD-50 at one point did a Cobb, but not sure.

Any thoughts?

    1. A Cobb salad is Cobb salad. Anything else is a salad.
