The enormous menu, which opens as wide as The New York Times, reads like an encyclopedia of red-checkered classics. But co-chefs Torrisi and Carbone have made such dramatic improvements, you’ll barely recognize anything. You’ve never had a Caesar salad like their tableside masterpiece, a beautifully dressed, nuanced variation on the classic, amplified with warm garlic-bread croutons, two types of anchovies and three types of cheese.
Classic lunch fixings include sandwiches, soup and, yes, the best salads in NYC. Resturants are giving sad salads a serious upgrade around New York, with hyperfresh produce plucked from the city’s best farmers’ markets. Whether you want an all-American classic or a Thai-style dish, these are the best salads in New York City.
