I recently picked up lunch at Cafe Palladio inside the Palladio antiques store. Seems every time I go I think to myself that I should eat at this place more often.
I ordered the Southern Fried Green Tomato BLT, without the bacon. With some fried green tomatoes, the corn meal is overdone, but these were nice and delicate and were nicely accented by the remoulade.
The $9.25 cost puts this sandwich on the pricey side (sandwiches start at $7.95). Sandwiches come with your choice of side, including potato and fruit salads and a pasta salad, which is excellent.
Other lunch options include the River City Cheesesteak panini (which comes with cream cheese!); a cheese and fruit sandwich with apples, honey, and brie; a chicken salad sandwich on a croissant. There are also a number of salads and daily soup selections.
Lunch is served 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
Cafe Palladio, 2169 Central (278-0129)
