When it comes to avocado, I think it's best not to fuss with it too much. If it's not broke, don't fix it, you know? So I have mixed feelings on the Avocado Toast ($5.00) from Iris. On the one hand, it's lightly seasoned and the avocado is rich and ripe. The 7-grain bread is chewy and nutty: a perfect companion for the avocado. On the other hand, the toast has mayo on it, which seems like overkill. It's true that without the mayonnaise, the avocado would be the only thing on the toast (except some salt and pepper), but to me there's nothing wrong with that.
