Stopped into Lettuce for a salad with a friend while in Walnut Creek recently and we were blown away by the excellent food and choices. (A nice location across from the Bedford Gallery, so you can make it an art trip as well.) Everything was fresh and tasty with different and interesting combinations, wonderful low calorie and healthy dishes. And the prices won’t break your pocketbook.
Restaurants like this are very, very hard-to-find, way too many fast food & fattening places abound. The only other one somewhat like it is the fantastic Mixt Greens in SF. Lettuce also uses local farms and ranches for all it’s dishes which is so important in today’s world. While eyeing all the yummy choices behind the counter it was oh-so-danged-hard to make up my mind what to have. Finally settled on the Sonoma salad (organic greens, tangerine orange, avocado, bosc pear, mango, toasted pecans, with goat cheese dressing and crumbles) and a bowl of the homemade soup (honey roasted butternut squash with green apple) …. they had a combo deal for both, which made it even less expensive. I cannot rave enough about how delicious everything was, just amazing!
