The New Katsu

Hunting & Gathering

For those of you who don't remember, Libby's Cafe once had a magical salad on the menu called the Katsu. Tender chicken slices were encrusted with wasabi crunchies. A perfectly pitched Asian ginger dressing gave a hint of spice and a hint of sweet. And then, like a dream, it was gone, no longer listed alongside the other salads on offer. Until recently, when the chefs at Libby's decided to give the Katsu a comeback. Instead of chicken, buttery tuna takes the stage, complete with the wasabi crust. With a few tweaks here and there to the rest of the mix, this new Katsu may have the chops to overtake its predecessor.

Libby's Cafe + Bar, 1917 South Osprey Ave., Sarasota, 941-487-7300.
