Mapping the meals even the poors can afford.
A few weeks back, dinner-booking site OpenTable.com announced "The Appetite Stimulus Plan," a promotion offering three-course prix fixe meals at 1,300 high-end eateries around the country. We usually don't get too excited about Restaurant Week-style promotions such as this, because they too often go hand-in-hand with limited selections, poor service and obnoxious crowds.
But Philly foodies are in luck, because one of the city's hottest dining rooms--Lacroix at the Rittenhouse--is running with the idea and offering the deal all winter long.
For $24, you can choose from a (limited) lunch menu of upscale comfort creations. For example, warm butternut squash-and-miso soup for a starter, orzo macaroni and cheese with spinach, smoked salmon, and oven dried tomato for the main and a pre-determined dessert tier.
Yes, $24 may sound like a lot to drop on a lunch, but considering mains alone usually go for that much or more at Lacroix, we're smelling a discount that's worth it.
