And here I'm not talking about "buffets" or "smorgasbords"...
 
When was the first time you walked into a "regular" restaurant and saw a salad bar?
 
My first was in 1971 at That Steak Place in Charlottesville, VA.  Couldn't get enough of the bacon bits!
 
The best was in the 1980's at Pistone's Italian Inn, at "Seven Corners" in Arlington/Falls Church, VA.  In addition to all the salads they offered a wide variety of cold cuts, charcuterie, smoked seafood, breads, and cheeses.  They are still in business but their present salad bar is only a shadow of its former glorious self.
