LOUISVILLE MAGAZINE 8.19 77 Mushroom Magic The miso sesame salad at Chik'n & Mi in Clifton is like a walk through the woods after a rain. The big bowl arrives with dark greens, cool and crisp, as if they have just drifted down from the trees in a strong breeze. They cover a bed of arugula, and as your fork probes the verdant layers it makes surprising discoveries: a fine-sliced asparagus shoot, maybe a sliver of sugar snap pea or radish. But best of all are the tidy, prim little shimeji mushrooms, moist and clumped in groups of twos and threes — perfect bite-size pieces. The earthy mushrooms are a perfect counterpart to the peppery arugula. When I order salad anywhere else, I always ask for dressing on the side, but it's not necessary with this delicate miso vinaigrette dressing, a thin coating of oil with just the right touch of sesame. The dressing is so spare that this $8 delight will actually keep for a second day. And it is large enough to take home or split with your dinner mate. — Nina Walfoort
