The Potpourri House
For nearly four decades, this has been the destination for ladies and gentlemen who lunch (and shop in the restaurant’s adjacent boutique). And though it still has too many varieties of chicken salad, the menu has undergone some interesting changes since our last visit, which include the introduction of a few international dishes. We enjoyed the Thai egg rolls filled with ground pork, and particularly the accompanying sweet yet hot red chile dipping sauce. Though we were tempted by the tiropita, an attractive assemblage of grilled chicken, feta, mushrooms, spinach and kalamata olives layered in phyllo and lightly sprinkled with a chard beurre blanc, we ultimately were happily won over by the coho salmon, char-grilled and glazed with a lovely mango-ginger-habanero sauce. Our post-lunch stroll through the boutique left our spirits and our wallets lighter.
