If you order a Caesar salad at Hy’s, a server will pull up a little cart — set up with a large salad bowl and all the ingredients — and prepare it on the spot.
“First goes in the cracked black pepper, fresh garlic, and chopped anchovies, then a whole egg, and so on, the server whisking furiously after each addition before tossing it all together with fresh Parmesan,” said Johnson.
