... is so not a part of the New York food lexicon (except for maybe Bread's in Nolita). It's something I missed (a whole heck of a lot) while I was out there—a super-fresh, supah-fly, crazy delicious salad packed with all the goodies, that is. Well, I got a real welcome home when I opened my to-go box from Boxed Foods Company. Have a look-see:
For the fairly modest price of $8, the grilled chicken salad comes packed with organic greens, roasted red peppers, grilled onions, chunks of tomato, Granny Smith apple slivers, gobs of Laura Chenel's goat cheese and a partridge in a pear tree. OK, maybe not the bird, but when I picked the box up off the counter, it sure felt like a carcass had been tucked away in there. Needless to say, my lunch mate had serious box envy; mine was bigger than his.
