Mona Lisa

Chef's Inspiration

The Mona Lisa is quite simply a caprese salad turned into a wrap. The classic Italian combo of fresh mozzarella, tomatoes and pesto is paired with our classic Balsamic Vinaigrette to cut through richness of cheese and pesto.

MAD Story

The day Mona Lisa posed for her portrait was the day she submitted her letter of resignation to Mr. Da Vinci. She was tired of letting some old man paint her (even if his salad art was addicting!). Newly unemployed, Mona Lisa realized she needed money, so she did the only thing a young woman in 1510 would do…She joined a competitive eating competition at the Rome County Fair for a chance at 50 gulden. As it turns out, Mona Lisa was phenomenal at competitive eating. She eventually entered the world championships to eat a quadruple-decker caprese wrap stuffed with juicy tomatoes, creamy mozzarella, fresh basil and rich balsamic with pesto on a whole wheat tortilla. Mona Lisa ultimately consumed 20 pounds of caprese in under 4 minutes and won the contest. After Mona Lisa's legendary feat, caprese wraps became the "in" wrap worldwide and remain popular to this day. (If you can eat 20 lbs. of our Mona Lisa wrap in under 4 minutes, we'll name a menu item after you!*)
