Hot Days Cool Salads
When the thermometer is soaring, who wants to eat a heavy meal? Days like this call for a light and refreshing salad, and you’ll find plenty of options on the menus at The Restaurant and Bar Collection.
The high notes of summer are delicately tossed with champagne vinaigrette in Bouchon Bakery’s elegant and satisfying Salmon Salad ($26). A gently crisped serving of Scottish salmon sits atop pearl cous cous with pickled blueberries, corn, pistachios, and micro greens.
For a quintessential summer classic, head to Landmarc for the signature Heirloom Tomato Panzanella ($20). Made with hand-pulled mozzarella and drizzled with seasonal basil oil, this earthy dish will make you feel like you are under the Tuscan sun.
Porter House Bar and Grill
The Gulf Shrimp Salad at Porter House Bar and Grill is delivered straight from the sea to your plate. And it's loaded with personality, thanks to a rich medley of summer flavors — avocado, tomato, lemon, thyme, and olive oil.
Keeping up with the carnivores? You'll be right in step at Center Bar, which serves a decadent Duck Confit-Kale Salad ($19) with almonds, sherry vinaigrette, and pomegranate molasses. It’s slow cooked and fork tender.
At Bar Masa, the Zucchini, Mango, Cilantro Julienne salad ($16) is served in an ice-cold glass bowl — the perfect presentation to keep you cool when it’s scorching outside. This swirl of delicate flavors has a spicy kick and a decadent topping of lightly fried zucchini flowers.
