You know what? Lunch is awesome. Lunch is a lot more calmer and quieter than dinner and brunch. A lot of times, you can seated right away for lunch AND some times restaurants will have great lunch deals. Like at Motorino with their $12 lunch prix fixe menu.
For $12, you get a pretty darn good mixed salad and your choice of pizzas (margherita, Brussels sprout, soppressata picante and marinara). I have heard much great things about their Brussels sprout pizza (it was also topped with fior di latte, garlic, pecorino, smoked pancetta and olive oil) so I got that also cause I love Brussels sprouts on pizza. The crust was great, the fior di latte was creamy and you can’t beat the combo of Brussels sprouts and bacon. Add a few dashes of chili flakes and you’re good to go.
