Caraway Cafe a Big Winner !

Doubt that I’ve ever eaten a heartier, heftier, more delicious sandwish than the Tuna Melt I had yesterday from the Caraway Cafe at 202 E. Broughton St. This was light years away from the tuna melt that normally is some run of the mill tuna salad with a slice of American cheese melted over it. Here was a thick slab of tuna steak, grilled to perfection, and placed on a ciabatta roll. Filled with chunks of artichoke hearts, an interesting aioli-style dressing, bits of green, and topped with Gruyère, and accompanied by a lavishly large artichoke heart  salad,  the whole plate fed two of us hungry people with a fair amount left over to take home.  Lunch just doesn’t get any better than this!

Revised Hours at the Starland Cafe

Hours at this wonderful lunch spot are shortened, now from 11 am to 3 pm. Monday through Friday. If you haven’t done so already, do get over there and sample one of their great, always freshly made, salads. My favorite: The Kitchen Sink, with romaine, red grapes, asparagus, artichoke hearts, golden raisins, dates, red onion, green apples, crunchy low mein noodles, and fire roasted tomatoes, served with a tomato oil infused buttermilk dressing. This unique combination just can’t be beat! Or their Tomato Thai Soup, with two kinds of roasted squash pureed with tomatoes and Thai spices. Or any of their grilled panini sandwiches on Ciabatta bread. Wish they were open 24/7.  11 E. 41st St., next to the Dog Park. 443-9355.
