You can get better salad at a convention center during a banquet. My spinach salad was drenched in a bland dressing. It came with about five pine nuts and two inch-long strips of roasted red pepper. The three brie croutons were ice cold. I added blackened salmon, which should really be named salty salmon. I am not sure there was any spice other than salt on it. Fortunately, there wasn't much of that either. My husband had the mixed greens salad with chicken. His salad was also heavily dressed. The chicken was almost pure gristle and connective tissue. Definitely not worth a $40 lunch. There was nothing fresh about this meal. Definitely not Top Chef. Definitely do not recommend for lunch. Chef Malarkey is well named is this is what he passes off as food.
