Today I stopped into the new Lennys NYC on west 9th at 6th ave. I usually have a salad for lunch and the best bets in the neighborhood are Cosi and Toasties NYC. I marched up to the counter and noticed they had a very wide variety of very fresh looking toppings then threw my order in. Mixed greens, tofu, cranberries, almonds, & feta - chopped please. All seemed to be going well until I noticed the size of the container they were going to throw it in. About half the size of those standard bullet looking salad containers many places have. \r
Ok, I figured well, it's chopped so maybe it warrants half the size. Worse, when they dumped the salad from the bowl into the container it only filled half the bowl. No joke, this salad was scantly larger than a side salad at many restaurants and then the kicker...my salad was $9.50. Even if I splurge at Toasties, get the works, my salad is less than that. And the ever so delicious salads at Cosi are less than that as well. This salad was maybe a third to a quarter of the size of Cosi and Toasties and cost MORE money!\r
I actually photographed the salad and emailed it to their corporate office.\r
I'm off to pick up a second lunch now.\r
Avoid Lenny's salads!
Pros: wide variety of salad toppings
Cons: will charge you an insane amount of money for a very measly salad
