Plain Jane

While we pored over the menu at Jane, RL agreed with me that the roasted chicken plate was probably one of the more boring choices on offer. Nonetheless, I wasn't in the mood for anything elaborate and chicken, classically prepared, seemed the most appealing.

I asked for my dish to come with a simple green salad instead of garlic mashed potatoes, and was treated to a substantial (as much as a pile of lettuce can be substantial) mesclun salad with a light coating of vinaigrette. This went perfectly with the tender and flavorful roasted organic chicken and the asparagus spears, both of which demonstrated the beauty of good ingredients prepared well. Roasted chicken might have been a dull choice, but dull—that night—was exactly what I wanted.

  1. I like Jane for brunch -- they take reservations! -- and their $12 Sunday night dinner is quite a bargain.
