If I could have a perfect lunch on a perfect day, it might be this lunch, had with my friend Galen (yes, yes, of the infamous Connecticut/Derby Day feasts). My seared scallop obsession continues, as evidenced in my salad recipe.
THE PLACE: Hundred Acres in Soho, at a table next to the open doors.
WHEN: a totally uncrowded midweek lunch in May
WHAT: Artichoke lasagnette, crazy delicious seared scallops.
WHY GO: It’s unassuming, the menu is easy, local New American/Continental fare (same owners as Cookshop and Five Points), the cocktail list is great and there are outdoor options for the summertime.
