THL Random Rankings: Best CH Salads

Pretty much every major DC publication spends some time each year ranking stuff. Best this and that in DC, yadda yadda. We've decided to join the party... however we're just going to rank totally random stuff, in Columbia Heights, whenever we feel like it.

The trick is we want YOU to join the judging and leave YOUR rankings in the comments section.

Our first installment of THL's Random Rankings: Best CH Salads. We have some good restaurants, so now let's tackle the nuance...

1. Crispy Goat Cheese Salad, Pete's Apizza
2. Steak and Blue Cheese Salad, The Heights
3. The Salad Bar, Ruby Tuesday's
4. House Salad, Pete's Apizza
5. Fried Chicken Salad, The Heights

Missing the cut: Anything at Red Rocks - the salads are good, but not top five good. Also the side salad at Commonwealth - good, but not very interesting. I realize the Pete's House Salad is totally simple, but it's still notably good.

So - any other takers? Top five favorite salads?

The last time I had a salad at Red Rocks, it was basically a pile of leaves. The pizzas there are awesome, but I wish they'd step up a bit in that department because for now it's not such a great place to take a non-pizza-eating date.

Has anyone tried the salad's @ Radius? They are to die for! Go for the Heirloom Tomato, with grilled watermelon and fig balsamic= yum! All of the produce is now local and organic and the new owners are really doing great things. I'm so happy that this is my new spot!

Hmm - I might have to check them out. They are technically in Mount P though, thus outside of my countdown rankings.
