The Plate: Balsamic Chicken Salad
The Place: Deck 84, 840 E. Atlantic Ave., Delray Beach; 665-8484 or www.deck84.com.
The Price: $17
The Skinny: One of the nicest things about Deck 84 is how much it evokes old-time Delray Beach, especially if you sit outside.
The Atlantic Avenue bridge opens and closes just as it did decades ago, when Busch’s Seafood had the space.
But the restaurant and its menu are decidedly 21st century in their approaches.
Case in point: This month’s Plate.
You could smell the chickeny goodness of this salad as soon as the server approached the table.
Large pieces of white-meat chicken that were grilled until tender sat atop a bed of mixed greens and romaine. Cherry tomatoes lent a sweet touch that was tempered by the plentiful chunks of tangy goat cheese and the toasted pine nuts.
Lest you think it’s too healthy, that is crispy onion on top — the sweet onion fried until lighter than air. It was dressed with a balsamic vinaigrette that complemented the chicken.
