Split Pea Seduction
Split Pea's chefs choose the freshest produce from small farms every day to create eclectic plates such as chicken and rice with avocado soup (12 oz. for $4.75). Try a roasted cauliflower crostata (an open-faced sweet or savory pastry baked golden-brown) with shaved fennel and parmesan ($6.99). Salads such as a baby spinach bowl (with roasted yams, peanuts, and fresh mozzarella in a rice-wine vinaigrette, $5.99 for a small) or mixed greens with blood oranges, roasted almonds, and blue cheese in a tarragon and fennel vinaigrette ($5.99 for a small) satisfy any fresh-leaf craving and some forms of coryza. Split Pea's sandwich creations include roasted natural chicken with red slaw, aioli, and pickled cukes on a house bun ($5.99). Plus, everything can be custom combined; get a 12-ounce soup and half a crostata for $8.50 or sandwich and 16-ounce soup for $11.50.
