This and that…

>New lunch menu @ Bourbon Steak– From 11:30 am-12 pm, posh and prompt are the new terms of the District lunch hour. Michael Mina is setting the pace with a new prix-fixe menu that allows guests to choose from multiple burgers alongside a side dish (*Market Greens, Trio of Duck Fat Fries (*Yum) or Beer Battered Red Onion Rings). Additionally, @ $21 a person, this meal comes with a non-alcoholic drink (*you shouldn’t be drinking during lunch anyhow…;-) and a brownie made in-house by Pastry Chef Santanna Salas. Some of the burgers to choose from? Vegetarian Falafel burger, Heritage Turkey and Oak-Fired Dry-Aged Steak burger. Ha, IN-N-OUT goes upscale…we like.
