Newly hired executive chef Chuck Nelson and his team at Café 1055 transform ingredients into lunch and dinner collections populated by upscale sandwiches and sophisticated innovations on old favorites. Fried green tomatoes ($5) kick off a noontime meal, before a sandwich—such as the combination of sliced turkey, melted brie, and pepper layered atop a toasted baguette ($6)—takes over tables with its entourage of fries, coleslaw, or a house salad. Both menus host a school of fish tacos— teeming with tilapia, corn-and-red-pepper salsa, and avocado cream ($9)—as well as flatbread pizzas ($5–$7 at lunch; $10 at dinner) dressed in a variety of toppings and festive hats. Soy sauce-glazed, pan-seared salmon ($16) flies in fresh from the Atlantic on lightly floured wings to join the choice of sides, including red potatoes and mushroom risotto, that accompany many of the dinnertime entrees.
