It's the placement of the fork that's really upsetting.
The photo above was shared by Wall Street Journal Digital Features Editor Kathryn Lurie, and she claims it's her colleague's salad from Pret A Manger. While the frog does lend more credence to Pret's claim their food is "natural" and sort of explains the restaurant's French name (it's actually based in the UK), it has done nothing at all for my New Year's resolution to eat more salad. Then again, that was doomed to fail anyway.
Pret issued a statement to Gothamist:
Hey, I'm sure eating "organic matter" is good luck for the New Year in some cultures.
