Dirty Oscar's Annex chef Aaron Grissom started cooking his new spring menu this week. I like the look of the salads, which sound as if they're among the most flavor-drenched around town. I'm looking forward to trying the arugula and butter leaf salad with tangerines, manchego, a mint vinaigrette and Marcona almond "dust" (that reminds me of how chefs used to use the word "foam" to describe ... soup). Another arugula salad comes with basil leaves, blueberries, chevre and a grilled citrus vinaigrette. Here's something neat - Grissom's menu is coded for people with dietary restrictions - "V" dishes are vegetarian and "G" dishes are gluten free. Other changes to the menu look promising - click below to see.
