Best Salad

Caribbean Jerk Salad

Fins Bar and Grill on the Square, 2903 O’Donnell St., (410) 675-1880

After having decided that Baltimore’s best salad should a) be a meal and not an appetizer and b) not necessarily vegetarian, the hands-down winner is Fins’ Caribbean jerk salad. A sweet and savory mix of jerk chicken, mesclun greens, provolone cheese, tropical fruit, red onion, and plum tomatoes, topped with a light honey-mustard dressing, this salad is an endless combination of flavors with each bite. Excuse the ambiance: gaudy tropical murals, cheesy bamboo wainscoting, the hits from some lite-FM satellite station, and the table to your left of girls comparing themselves to characters from Coyote Ugly (yes, this happened). Focus instead on the menu, where the jerk salad is a definite standout, but the nine other meal salads are also delicious, reasonably priced, and can feed two.
