Going Green


Branch Line will become known for its rotisserie chicken and extraordinary beer program, but don’t overlook the unassuming bar bite of salted avocado. The brand-new Watertown spot, a suburban extension of Garrett Harker’s Eastern Standard, shows the creamy fruit serious respect: The perfect specimen is carefully sliced, dressed in vinaigrette that pops with sweet fresh marjoram and crisp pickled mustard seeds, and topped with strips of clean, salty-rich ricotta salata peeled from chef de cuisine Stephen Oxaal’s batch. You’ll be scraping up every last bit.

Salted avocado, $5 at Branch Line, 321 Arsenal St., Watertown (617-420-1900) branchlinearsenal.com
