We know a good thing when we taste it. That's why, when we had our first salad from Just Salads on Park Avenue we weren't fooled by the free cool bright-colored reuseable containers, the hip music, or the wickedly good-looking patrons (which apparently NY Mag has caught on too as well)....we were just smitten with the salads. They are unmistakeably good. The dressings and breads are amazing and the cheddar cheese! My god it's like a little bite of heaven for less than $10. So apparently it's also the new cool place (along with the Bowery Whole Foods store) to meet hot singles in their 20s. Our thoughts? We think that this is just about the healthiest way to meet a date ever. No waking up the next morning with a massive headache wondering who is beside you, no pretentious dinner parties, no booze, no drugs, just salad.

We also think the people they found to interview were cute:

Dressing and Girls...sounds about right
