The lunch menu is short and still evolving but includes a soup of the day, a few sandwiches, salads, and a couple of more traditional entrees. Our soup was gazpacho, a tomato base with chunkiness added in the form of red onion and more tomato. A dab of cooling creme fraiche contrasted with the spiciness of the soup, with crunch coming from two crispy slices of toasted baguette spread with pesto. The soup tastes delicious and feels like a megavitamin; I could live on this all summer. Even my drink--an Arnold Palmer made with black currant tea and freshly squeezed, barely sweetened lemonade--was exceptional.

Aronoff is mining her proximity to the Farmers' Market. The fluffy omelets are made with fresh local eggs. A chopped salad features greens, scraped corn, and tomatoes from purveyors like Tantre Farm, Goetz, Donahee Farms, and Garden Works. Add cubed Gouda, crumbled bacon, hardboiled eggs, avocado, and herb vinaigrette, and it's very nearly perfect.

The local vegetables in the PBLT--pancetta, bacon, lettuce (really arugula), and tomato--come together on a wonderful Cafe Japon demi-baguette with a smear of aioli. The bacon-pancetta combination made for a multilayer experience--crunch into the thick, smoky bacon and slide into the softer, milder pancetta. My only complaint is that it's so thick it's cumbersome to eat.
