art school salad, $7.50
Published: November 22, 2011
At the cozy Copper Kitchen Café in the Southwest School of Art, suits, students, staffers, and others in the know march through line with trays before sitting down to lunch at massive, burnished wooden tables in the original dining hall of the Ursuline Convent and Academy. A new-ish addition to the unfussy menu is the satisfying Art School Salad. Big enough for a meal, this painterly arrangement of romaine hearts, walnuts, cranberries, mandarin oranges, gorgonzola, and sliced Asian pears and purple onions tossed in balsamic vinaigrette isn’t always up on the dry-erase board, but can often still be had if you just ask nicely.
