Del Posto – Michelin Star Restaurant Lunch Deal

Michelin star restaurant, Del Posto Lunch Promotion. New York, USA

I asked for restaurant suggestions in New York, almost everyone recommended Del Posto for lunch. I can see why, it was delicious. Del Posto décor was stunning. A two level restaurant that reminded me of opulent Victorian homes with the gleaming cherry oak. They had a personal stool to rest your designer bag. I thought it was a foot stool, that’s how cultured I am.

This was the best Orecchiette dish I’ve ever had. It was so creamy it just melted in my mouth. It was one of my favourite dishes of the meal. Not part of the set lunch menu.

JJ’s Restaurant – Best Lunch Deal

VCC culinary school is one of my favorite lunch spots and, definitely on my list of best lunch deals. It is delicious, cheap and usually booked up a week in advance. It took many attempts to get a table of 6. Apparently the buffet needs to be booked 2 months in advance. Yea, it’s that good.

What I love about culinary school’s or cooking schools is that they make everything from scratch, no processed shortcuts.

Appies…

Charred Vancouver Island Octopus, Chorizo and chick pea stew $4. A damn good deal! It was good and the portions were similar to Hawksworth entrée sizes.

Roasted vegetable soup was hearty and healthy $2.50

Salmon, prawn and scallion cake with Thai lemongrass sauce $4 had a nice layering of flavors.

Entrees…

Scallops with truffled potato gnocchi and crispy artichokes $10. This creamy dish was very filing. My friend who can usually eat for 2 was full. I would have preferred if the gnocchi had more buoyancy, it was too soft.

Slow cooked leg of lamb and pan roasted loin, rosemary jus $10. The meat was tender and flavourful. It’s $10 for lamb and loin!

I had to call attention to the sides, Cucumber and squash was pretty and delicious.

Culinary Art School – Art Institute of Vancouver

One of the more acclaimed culinary school tucked on Granville. The quality of food is superb. Compared to VCC’s JJ’s Restaurant the price point was a little more expensive.

Service was impeccable and welcoming. It’s kinda endearing when young to be cooks shyly serves you.

Butternut squash with apples, this was delicious mmm…$7

Arugula & beet salad, portion is smaller than usual but, still very refreshing.
