A Bit of Napa Valley in Downtown Salem?

Raspberry Chicken Salad with Mandarin Oranges and Spiced Pecans

The Garden Restaurant in the Peabody Essex Museum (PEM) recently received new cushions for the outdoor chairs, and new umbrellas. As I was dining there this week, I remarked to my dining companion that it felt just like I was having lunch at some nice alfresco restaurant in the Napa Valley.

Oddly enough, today while I was there taking these photos, some guests were saying nearly the same thing to our service captain, David Pagano.

We will let you decide for yourself, and we would love to hear your comments right here on this blog post.

  1. This raspberry chicken salad really is fantastic. The next time I'm at the Museum Restaurant, however, will be the Crabmeat Salad, which I have heard is one of the best salads - ever! Thanks for the reminder to put this garden oasis on my "to do" list for lunch... soon!
