Vinaigrette actually makes you feel excited about eating a salad. A New Mexico import, this place is the best thing to happen to your lunch routine if you live or work anywhere nearby. Whether the word “raw” is a word you use to describe your diet, or you just like to do not-terrible things for your body once in a while, you’ll be able to find something you like amongst the giant salads, tasty snacks, and freshly-made fruit drinks. Unless it’s over 95 degrees, you have no excuse not to eat on the glorious back patio under a big oak tree.
