At the Daily's Northwest 13th Avenue location, this light-filled eatery decked out with lime-green plastic chairs and simple wood tables serves artful grilled and cold sandwiches (roast chicken with basil pesto and roasted tomato jam; tuna salad with wasabi mayo and cucumbers) as well as salads and soups, registering on most diners' radars as a lunch destination only. But don't overlook this casual joint for a satisfying dinner. A "saltimbocca-style" pan-roasted chicken breast aside a ragoût of fresh shell beans and toybox tomatoes; bruschetta with camembert, fresh figs and hazelnuts; and a variety of salads and sides sourcing the local bounty can be enjoyed in the evening hours at prices more modest than those of most of its Pearl District neighbors.

IDEAL MEAL: Baked 10-ounce Carlton Farm pork chop with risotto-mascarpone cakes and Italian plum sauce; Singing Pig greens and aged balsamic vinegar; brandy and vanilla-poached peaches over pound cake with whipped crème fraîche and black currant sauce.
