At Sarabeth’s, at the corner of Simonton and Southard, the motto seems to be “simple is best.”  Their food is straightforward, minimally adorned and simply delicious.  Some of my favorites are the most basic:  tuna salad on grilled bread drizzled with balsamic vinegar, crispy fried chicken (on Sunday evening only) and a velvety tomato soup that is the essence of earthy vegetable flavor.  The wine list is simple and straightforward as well, with good pairings at good values.  The terrace is pleasant any time of year and the small interior dining room is bright and bustling.  No reservations here, but the elegant and charming proprietor, David, will make your wait brief and enjoyable.
