Despite the misleading name, one of my favorite dishes at the new Chocolate Lab is this savory-sweet cheesecake and salad. Light as air, the flavor of delicate goat cheese and the tender crumb are the perfect foil for a well dressed salad of greens and snappy vegetables that changes with the seasons, but is always tasty.
The tartines--grilled open-face sandwiches, hit all the right notes, and are offered in at least three variations daily--my favorite is the ham and cheese.
The soups are the sleeper item on the menu, their names rarely capturing the full complexity of the ingredients nor and depth of flavors in every one I've tried. Lastly, it really goes without saying, but don't forget to leave room for desert.
