On hot summer nights, salad seems just the right solution for supper, especially when it's made more substantial with a generous dose of seafood.

Leafy greens, sweet ripe tomatoes, or crisp shredded cabbage are perfect counterpoints to cool, sweet shrimp, scallops, crab, fish, or calamari. To keep the seafood tender and flavorful ― and the house cool ― we use simple techniques like gentle steeping for shellfish or quick grilling for fish fillets.

Sophisticated touches such as lively homemade dressings, fresh herbs, or even a little fresh fruit elevate these simple salads to sensational light meals. With a basket of bread and a cold drink, they're the perfect meals for beating the heat.
