So I was delighted to walk in the door of Succotash‘s new location at 26th and Holmes, and feast on an open, uncluttered, and cheerful new space. Nothing fancy, certainly not pretty, but all the chairs match. And based on just one experience at this new venue, the service is vastly improved as well.
I was also happy to find that my favorite spinach salad in town is back. Taken off the menu years ago, owner Beth Barden decided to revive it, and it was as good as I remembered. Fresh spinach, wilted by a warm mustard vinaigrette resplendent with thick chunks of bacon. Add pear, walnuts and blue cheese, and it’s a full meal.
Their version of a Cobb salad, with a fried egg on top and succotash mixed in, is another favorite. Sandwiches are also plentiful, with interesting combinations and ingredients. And of course at breakfast, there are some great egg dishes to be devoured.
Once a liquor license is secured, Succotash will be open for dinner as well as breakfast and lunch. I will look forward to it.
