From 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. we offer Lunch Specials.
#1) Soup, Salad & Breadsticks
#2) Slice, Salad & Drink
Both specials are $5.99. Six bucks.
For our first special….
The soup is either bought from a food vendor (and not cheap – usually our cost is $2+ a serving), or we make it from scratch. I’m especially proud of my homemade French Onion Soup with a giant crostini covered in aged Provolone and rosemary. So so SO good! Just for the record, I always let our customers know if the soup is homemade or bought frozen. No fair advertising “Homemade” if it’s not…
Our side salad is fresh romaine chopped every morning. We tried using the pre-chopped stuff; it didn’t cut it. Get it? Cut it?!?
Boh. Anyway… we use crispy romaine, Roma tomato rinds (I insist on tossing the insides, as they end up watering down the salads), a bit of freshly-shredded mozzarella and provolone cheeses, and dressing tossed together. It’s topped with garlic croutons, and is a simple, fresh salad.
Our breadsticks are a meal unto their own. I have yet to try breadsticks that taste better. Hand-rolled and topped with minced garlic, butter, salt, parmesan and mozzarella cheeses; then sliced and cooked to order for 5 minutes until they’re “poofy” and cheesy. They are so gooey and amazing.
Our #2 Special has your choice of a foot-long slice of Cheese, Pepperoni, or our Slice o’the Day, with a salad and a fountain drink or a beer. In the last three days, we’ve featured a Chicken Caesar Slice with grilled chicken, sun-dried tomatoes & toasted pinenuts, then topped with chilled shredded lettuce, a drizzle of Caesar dressing and shredded parmesan. Another specialty slice was our Sweet Thai Chicken with diced peanuts and coconut flakes. Good stuff.
For six bucks you can have a foot-long slice of gourmet, homemade pizza (equivalent to 2.5 slices of a “normal” large pizza), a fresh salad, and a beer.
Or – a bowl of soup, some gooey cheesy breadsticks, and a crisp salad for the same price.
Truly… can you find a better deal?
