Wedge Salad @ Acme Oyster House
Although the famous place for a wedge salad with blue cheese is (and has been for many decades) Charlie’s Steak House, the version served at the Acme Oyster House beats it by the thickness of a lettuce leaf. The Acme’s version is always fresh, loose, and crisp. The dressing is superb and served in such quantity that you almost have enough to take home to dress another salad. And they crumble bacon over it. Tomatoes can be had for the asking.
