Mike and I were looking for something different at Providence Place Mall and unexpectedly ran into the Marketplace Cafe at Nordstrom. This restaurant, located on the upper level of Nordstrom department store, offers great views of the surrounding trees in a quiet, classy atmosphere.
Here are a few pictures of the dining room:
The menu is a decent size and all entrees are displayed in a glass counter. This allows you to get a glimpse at what your meal will look like. The employees were very friendly and offered to give us samples.
I like that Nordstrom uses organic produce, does not use hydrogenated oils. I had the Cilantro Lime Chicken Salad (minus the chicken). This salad was amazing – better than I anticipated! A great tasting combination of mixed organic greens, cheese, roasted peppers, pumpkin seeds, and tomatoes, topped with a cilantro lime vinaigrette.
Mike ordered the Chicken Mozzarella Ciabatta, which he said also loved. This sandwich consisted of grilled chicken, tomato, mozzarella, organic spinach, pesto,and a balsamic glaze.
The servings sizes were not huge, but enough for a light, delicious lunch. Take a look the menu.
Nordstrom Cafe is the perfect spot for a quick lunch at Providence Place. It might not be the most popular restaurant, but it sure was one of the best we have tried! Don’t miss out on this one located on the top floor of Nordstrom!
