This week, I visit Green Bean (232 North Euclid Avenue; 314-361-4444), the salad-centric restaurant in Central West End. Page through for a sneak preview of my review.
Some mornings, after I finally summon the energy to get out of bed, once I've knocked back a couple of aspirin with a slug of black coffee, when the fog of last night's wine has begun to lift and the ache in my knees is at least tolerable, I can face myself in the bathroom mirror and feel, if not good, at least OK about the mess that I've made of the first 35 years of my life.
Then I remember Green Bean.
The basic facts about Green Bean are unremarkable. It opened in November of last year in the heart of the Central West End. It follows the fast-casual model. It serves salads and wraps. The details, however, will either inspire you or send you into a fugue of regret and self-doubt.
Visit Gut Check tomorrow to read my review and view a slideshow of Green Bean.
