Standard Market Grill — some nice salad choices

Restaurants attached to supermarkets are all the rage these days, but the food can be spotty depending on how much the supermarket really wants to invest in its prepared foods operations. Often too, anything made is loaded with too much salt and fat.

So I was a bit wary when a friend suggested with try the Standard Market Grill in Naperville. The grill is attached to the Standard Market next door, a typical new age supermarket with a lot of produce and prepared foods for busy shoppers to take and eat at home.

But I was pleasantly surprised by the salad offering sat the grill. I shied away from the dressings but forgot to say no cheese on my Mediterranean salad which included grilled salmon. Luckily the cheese was only crumbles of feta so I was able to stay away from most of it. I also asked for no croutons.

The salmon was tasty, the tomatoes, greens and cucumbers tasted wonderfully fresh. Eating it on the outdoor patio on a wonderful summer day added to the enjoyment. My friend Gale also ordered a salad, it might have been the crunch, see if you can tell from the photo here.

The rest of the menu, once you move beyond the salad section, looks a bit high-salt, high-fat to me, unfortunately. I’d like to see more healthy choices there. But if you’re looking for a tasty salad, Standard Market Grill delivers.
