An­nies Cafe & Bar: Farm­ers’ Mar­ket Salad

319 Congress Ave. 472-1844,­ni­

Austin American-Statesman - - FOOD & DRINK - — M.S.

An­nies is our most ur­ban of down­town lunch­rooms, its vaulted brick space re­sound­ing on week­days with the chat­ter of a full house and a line to the door. Lunch is when you or­der this $7.95 salad, an­chored by the roasted, earthen sweet­ness of roasted red and yel­low beets. From that base, the pep­pered tones of arugula and radish smack a lit­tle per­son­al­ity into creamy bites of goat cheese. The horse­rad­ish vinai­grette is good, made even bet­ter by the $2 op­tion of top­ping this salad with a seared fil­let of salmon rather than chicken. At night, you’ll have to set­tle for the fried cala­mari or seared duck sal­ads, al­though you can’t re­ally call that set­tling.
