Now that spring has sprung you can find me at State & Allen twice a week, ordering a Silver Bowl Salad and sipping the martini of the week. As for the Silver Bowl, it's got chopped romaine lettuce with grapes, bacon, mandarin oranges, and a spicy chicken that is the end-all, be-all of chicken. I don't know what they do to it, but it is what all chickens aspire to. Their dessert menu is fab too: try the Margarita Cheesecake with the fleur de sel. It's TLE... that's The Living End for the uninitiated.
Add that to your chance to spot some a medley of passersby that includes cutiepie dogs, 'interesting' fashion choices, and droolworthy fellas, you've got a winning combination.
Pros: patio dining, martini-of-the-week, their pastry chef
