Lunch at Tossed and Strolling in the City

Boston was beautiful yesterday. The sun was shining, there was a slight breeze and despite a few looming dark clouds, it was a dry day. Earlier in the month I was invited to try Tossed, a counter-service restaurant in the Prudential Center. Tossed boasts garden fresh salads, crepe wraps, sandwiches and smoothies. I popped in around 1 PM, looked over the menu and ordered the Tarragon Chicken Salad Sandwich:

I chose to have it on ciabatta bread rather than the multi-grain bread. This is how my made-to-order sandwich looked:

Do you see that lettuce?! Seriously?!!! A little disappointing. The chicken salad WAS very tasty… the Tarragon really came through and I was happy with that. However, I was disappointed with the lettuce and the amount of chicken salad compared to the single leaf. There was TONS of chicken salad… perhaps a bit too much, but that may just be a personal preference. Though it was tasty, it was also mayo-heavy… so if you don’t care for mayo, do not order this sandwich.

The meal was rounded out by a small bag of Cape Cod Potato Chips and a bottle of water. The other unimpressive thing about Tossed, the prices. I felt that they were a bit steep considering the other options in the Prudential Center Food Court for sandwiches and salads. This meal would have set me back $10. Salads were priced similarly… definitely not something I’d be able to order on the regular. With that said, I am grateful that I had the opportunity to try Tossed and tell my readers about it… if you’ve been there and have any menu recommendations, please let me know!

After lunch, I took advantage of the nice day and strolled around Newbury and Boylston Streets. The crowds were out in full-force! It was a perfect day for window shopping.

I picked up some fun stuff at Anthropologie and Boston Olive Oil Company. If you are ever in the area and have never been, check out the Boston Olive Oil Company! They have SO many great varietals of Olive Oil and Balsamic. I picked up some delicious treats… you’ll be seeing them soon I’m sure!

Hope you all had a fantastic weekend and are enjoying the Spring weather.

  1. I’ve been meaning to get to Tossed. I want to try their salads. I hate getting sandwiches as places like that because they ALWAYS stuff them with meat and get the vegetable ratio all wrong. Sorry 😦

    Your pictures are beautiful!

  2. I cannot stop giggling at that skint piece of lettuce. I feel like there should be a word for a singular leaf of lettuce. Like letti? Letta?
