Two new sandwiches caught my eye this week as I walked by The Golden West: avocado, artichoke, tomato, and mint (four of my favorite things!) and a version of the divine Nicoise salad between bread. I haven't been out to lunch in ages, and I was bored by the idea of my salad, so post-2 p.m. I hightailed it out.
Tragically, considering what a special occasion this was, the avo and artichoke was sold out, as was the Nicoise. Determined, I marched over to The Sentinel, which highly satisfied with the last remaining tuna sandwich of the day.
Like the tony tuna salad at Bar Jules, this salad leaned on peppers, not mayo, for flavor, mixing them in with other Nicoise ingredients like egg and olive. It was garnished with the usual blessedly fresh butter lettuce and a few green beans, which were a nice crunch; could have used more, in fact. But all in all, yesterday The Sentinel was looking out for me.
