La Caesar     10

Mr. Gardini, an Italian immigrant living in Mexico & the U.S. was the first to introduce Caesar salad to the world. Traditionally made with romaine lettuce and croutons, the salad is tossed in a dressing of lemon juice, olive oil, egg, Worcestershire sauce, anchovies, garlic, Dijon mustard, Parmesan cheese and black pepper. While our Caesar is served with a similar homemade dressing, our presentation is remarkably different. We take a locally grown whole heart of romaine, grill it until slightly charred, and finished with our dressing and croutons.

pacchino cherry tomatoes, homemade burrata mozzarella and a deep, rich basil olive oil that would make him proud.
