Caribbean Comfort

I've blogged about Prado Restaurant before, but that was with an iPhone. This place definitely deserves better than an iPhone post.

The interior of Prado is bright, colorful, and filled with eclectic elements, not unlike its food.

This dish includes a Jamaican tamale, shrimp in black pepper sauce, crab cake, and chile relleno. Everything is excellent -- great way to taste a bunch of things on one plate.

Cold poached salmon ($15.75).

If you're watching what you eat, you'll appreciate this salmon poached in Chardonnay served with tomatillo salsa and dill sauce and a side of barbecue salad. The salmon is moist and lovely, and the barbecue salad is very tasty.

My heart belongs, however, to this freakishly delicious salad. Yes, a salad! Mixed greens tossed in a light vinaigrette with brie, apples, grains, nuts, tomatoes, squash, zucchini, plus a number of other vegetables (according to the menu, there are 20 ingredients) equals ecstasy. This is one of my favorite salads of all time. I always order it.

You should, too.


  1. It's funny that your Prado is so very different than ours. Okay, maybe not funny, but I can't really think of the appropriate word.

  2. This all sounds so fresh and healthy (or healthier) yet delicious.

  3. Love Prado.
    Love Larchmont.
    Love that salad.

  4. I want a freakishly delicious salad. I didn't think such a thing existed.

  5. I love me the big giant salad! I've driven by this place a hundred times but never have thought about dining there. May have to get on that soon. Because, you know, I love me the big giant salad. :)

  6. A salad?! Rivers, get outta here! I kid... A little balance in life is niiice.

  7. I can't remember the last time I read your blog when you raved about a salad entree. Looks good!

  8. Oooh! I <3 Larchmont! Just love.
