Canela's gazpacho was perfect for our recent autumn heatwave

Early stand-out: There's two! A bright amuse of gazpacho (also on the menu at $5 cup/$7 bowl). The cool puree of tomato, cucumber, red bell pepper, garlic, and olive oil kickstarts the taste buds. Salt cod salad ($9 small/$15 large) is punctuated by olives, red onion, and orange slices, cutting the saltiness of the fish, while orange vinaigrette ties it together. For me, salt cod evokes the Mediterranean every time, particularly when it's this fresh-tasting and, well, salty. This simple salad sent me right back to Spain gazing out at the sea.
