Hours: Lunch & Dinner, (Mon.-Sat.)
With a create-your-own option as well as a solid list of signature items, Verde covers all the (green) bases. Salad bases range from mesclun to kale, with topping choices like beets, edamame, and artichoke hearts. Add cheese, protein, and a dressing (we recommend the lemon tahini) and you’re good to go. If you’d prefer to save your decision-making capabilities then grab a signature salad like the Southern Harvest which stays true to its name with cornbread croutons and sweet tea vinaigrette. Any salad can also be wrapped so whether you’re looking to sit and munch or grab and go, Verde’s got you covered. Oh, and this locally owned and operated chain is growing. Last summer they opened their first Charlotte location, with more green goodness on the horizon, we’re sure. —Connelly Hardaway (Dish, Winter 2019)
