Yesterday our restaurant critic Kathryn Robinson labeled the 20 Buck Duck at Campagne “the deal of the century.” Here’s another special to rival that: In celebration of its third anniversary Volunteer Park Café is offering three-course dinners for $30. The deal starts January 12 and runs until the end of the month. Talk about a steal.
Here’s an idea of what to expect. Entrees include cafe beef brisket or wild boar bolognese (both with plenty of scrumptious sides, of course). For a salad choose between fennel blood oranges with frisée, herb vinaigrette, and candied pine nuts or roasted butternut squash with baby spinach, pancetta lardoons, toasted pumpkin seeds, and shaved grana; for dessert, molten chocolate cake with fresh whipped cream, or a fruit crisp topped with Molly Moon’s ice cream.
If you’re like me at all, you’ve been jonesing to nab a seat at one of their monthly multicourse wine dinners but just can’t swallow the hefty price tag. Here’s a chance to get in on that action, penny pinchers.
