Best of Boston

2007 Best Salad Bar

Sebastian’s Cafe

You want to be healthy, honest you do. But it’s hard when you can’t be sure just how long that mesclun has been sitting in the salad bar. The greens, roasted peppers, baby corn, and other fresh veggies at Sebastians never invite such suspicion, looking and tasting as though they arrived from the farm mere moments ago. At your direction, the speedy servers pack up vibrant lettuce, grilled meats, and cheeses with just the right amount of dressing. A basic salad is $6.75, so you’ll have room, and cash, left over for an indulgent dinner.
