76. Arugula and Roasted Corn Salad from PL8

When pork belly and tasting menus have pummeled the week's eats, I add a leg at PL8, for a break in more ways than one. PL8 offers lovely salads with delicious accompaniments, such as  this arugula favorite, lightly dressed in mustard vinaigrette, complemented with a cascade of wood-roasted corn. Toasted almond slivers add crunch, while strawberries punctuate with sweetness.

The salad is the work of chef Joel Christy, who took the helm at PL8 in early January. The restaurant transformed from a neighborhood restaurant as Himmarshee Bar & Grille to a small-plates menu in September, to much fanfare. Several recent visits suggest PL8 is finding its groove.
