Blooming pots and bedding plants offer natural decor at this lunchtime charmer inside Archie’s Gardenland, on the West Side. Chefs Joshua Donovan and Kevin Martinez, of Tokyo Cafe, collaborate on weekly menus, served from an emerald-green truck on lemon-yellow tables. Highest marks thus far go to shrimp and grits in a brown butter sauce, with a fluffy green salad alongside, as well as to avocado toast crowned by a poached egg with sun-dried tomato pesto. Grilled sourdough framed with mozzarella and ricotta pairs well with tomato-basil soup. Don’t pass up the heirloom tomato salad with house-made mozzarella. Chunky banana pudding provides the best finish before you shop for hanging baskets and garden supplies. Watch the website for monthly tasting-menu suppers.
