  • The "life-altering" kale salad.

Rated last year as one of the best restaurants in America by Bon Appétit, Battersby has built up a cult following with its farm-to-table cuisine including, most notably, its kale salad. But all this comes at a cost, and entrees at Battersby usually come in over $30, which isn't exactly cheap. But never fret, because, as great as it would be to splurge on a tasting menu there, you can also be satisfied if you go in and just order a salad. Just a salad? Yup. Just a salad. Salad is, after all, what put Battersby on the map. I mean, Andrew Knowlton called the kale salad "life altering!" But don't go for the kale salad (it isn't usually on the menu anymore anyway). Instead, I recommend the Summer Squash salad with walnuts, currants and basil ($15), or, if you want something uniquely refreshing, try the Watermelon salad with feta and shishito peppers ($14). Both are delicious and both are budget friendly and both will help you understand why Battersby is a magical place without making you go broke. Perfect.

Battersby; 255 Smith Street, Cobble Hill
