Always fresh, always locally inflected, and always seasonal, the salads at this oyster and chop house are bright and perfectly dressed—not to mention Instagram-worthy. The menu changes frequently, but think local greens dressed with onion vinaigrette, Mizuna topped with goat cheese, cashews, and asparagus, or a beet salad with a spicy green chili dressing.
