Jef­frey’s: Thum­balina Salad

1204 West Lynn St. 477-5584, www. jef­freyso­

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

The beauty of this long rec­tan­gu­lar plate is that it looks like a bushel-bas­ket land­slide. So much red Ro­maine, such big cross-sec­tions of avo­cado and curled slices of thum­balina, that runty round carrot that looks like a Cream­si­cle beet. It’s a salad for the South­ern well-to-do, big and brash and un­de­ni­able, not afraid to show off with a lit­tle feta, some mar­cona al­monds, a splash of le­mon-and-dill vinai­grette. And like the South, it has se­crets. Its se­cret? This $12 belle can be yours for half-price. You just have to know the time and place to ask. (That would be in the bar, from 5 to 7 p.m. Sun­days-Fri­days and 9 to 11 p.m. Satur­days.)
