City Greens (#239, 12/13/12)

I think the kid is crying because his brains were used to make the water.

Okay, as I continue my vegetarian diet, I opted for a nice, healthy lunch, just down the road from the Superdome. This City Greens place is pretty good; I had never heard of it, but it seems like a good salad. Sort of a chipotle-style place with salads. You walk along the counter and tell them what you want in your salad. I went for the truffle caesar salad with boiled shrimp – pretty darn healthy, huh? They also had funky waters, called Wat-aah, or maybe WAT-AAH, with stuff added to them. I went with the Brain-flavored water and I could barely taste the brains at all.

You just order at the counter, they hand it to you, you pay, then find a seat and eat. I bet you could even take it with you if you wanted, since it’s in a plastic bowl with a cover. They have a handful of tables and a longer bar-sort of seating place. A typical lunch-style place (it’s only open 11-2).

So let’s see, using the exciting new ranking system….the food gets a 35 out of 50. It was a a very good salad. Hmm, this is a problem with ranking system. The salad was very good as far as salads go, but it wasn’t as good as the sushi from the other night. So I don’t see how I can give a salad more points than that sushi, but they never represented themselves as anything different than a salad place. Oh well, I’ll say, good food. 35.

Atmosphere? Eh, not much, but nothing bad – again, it’s just a lunch place. So I’ll give it a 15 (I’m saying that’s half of 30 so it’s average). Then service; all good, pretty quick, always a bonus in a lunch place, so they will get the full 20 there; they did everything that could be expected. Hmm, they didn’t go above and beyond though, so will give them 17.

The brain-flavored water is good though, so this may be a case of the drinks resulting in bonus points. They also had coconut water and a lot of different root beers. Definitely five bonus points for drinks. Hmm, or maybe four bonus points.

So, the final score for City Greens is…56. Not too shabby.
