Living in the neighborhood, Black Swan is a great go-to when you don't feel like cooking.  I have not had a single menu item that I didn't like yet. 

This is going to sound healthy crazy, but trust me, I'm not one: their salads are amazing. So generous and fresh. I've had all three and would rate them in this order: country salad (candied pecans, goat cheese and balsamic vinaigrette, add chicken); chop salad (you already know what's in a chop salad), and THEN the kale Caesar, because it's just a little bland compared to the other two.

On the less healthy side, their burgers are fantastic: big and juicy with your choice of sweet potato or regular fries, or salad. There's no wrong choice, but you won't be sorry if you choose sweet potato fries, just sayin'. 

Brunch is lovely, and should be started with a Bloody Swan. That bad boy has a shrimp, a pickle, an onion, a cube of cheese AND a slice of bacon, and it comes with a beer chaser. Bravo, Black Swan. If that's not enough, I always order anything Benedict; you can't go wrong with Benedict.
