Fare Is Just Fair

Trey Popp reviews the good-for-you Fare in Fairmount. Unfortunately, Popp doesn’t find much of the food to be better than fair.

But even the most upright and righteous guests in Fare’s moral temple should beware the dandelion greens slicked with anchovy and topped with a fried egg. They’re as bitter as tears, only not nearly as salty. Truly, when your waiter inquires about your dietary requirements, you might consider claiming hypotension. Faking a fatal dandelion allergy might not hurt, either.
