Tender Greens, Culver City, CA

The pot and pan haven't been on my dance card lately. I have been eating out a lot. A lot.

So, this is "Restaurant Week...that might get extended for a while" on the blog. Catchy title, no? I have so many random, unfinished restaurant posts that I'm cleaning house! And I went up to San Francisco last week so I'll have some Southern and Northern adventures this week...and maybe next week.

First up, Tender Greens in Los Angeles

Tender Greens is a "fast-service restaurant" (you order at the front, wait for your food, pay and sit indoors or outdoors...what is the proper name for this type of ordering/serving?) The food is very fresh and delicious. They have salads, soups and sandwiches. I've been here twice; they have several other locations as well.

You may think with the name Tender Greens that it is vegetarian or vegan...but no. As evidenced by my marinated flat iron steak salad.

The meat was perfectly cooked and just the right amount. I like a little steak with my salad, not for it to be the focus of the meal. We had a little mis-communication when I ordered it and they made the food to go.

Oh, the mashed potatoes are to die for. I love them. So whipped and melt-in-your-mouth yummy!

There's a Tender Greens right down the street from my work on Santa Monica Blvd in W.Hollywood and the one time I went there I was a little dissapointed. It's not that the salad they made wasn't good, because it was amazing - it was the fact that I had paid $14 for some lettuce, quinoa and sprouts! It definitely seems like one of those typical LA type places where they can get away with charging just about anything. it's 'hip,' so people go there. Heck, I did!
