Cedarhurst Cafe


John Cordoba, the Costa Rican-born co-owner of Cedarhurst Cafe, is something of a mad scientist when it comes to salads -- and his clientele wouldn't have it any other way.

Lunchtime, his eatery by the LIRR station is usually packed with a hard-core, salad-scarfing set. Hardly dietetic "rabbit food," these are substantial bowls of food, classifiable as both creative and offbeat. --Joan Reminick
