Economic recovery: The 99 percent get lunch
It is being reported that economic recovery is back, at least for the 1 percent, who get to eat $100 dinners at pricey new spots like Brasserie Provence, or nosh from the upscale end of the dinner menu at El Camino.
For the 99 percent, though - the rest of us who are still struggling paycheck to paycheck - well, we’re getting by on a load of new lunch spots where an appetizing midday repast won't cost you an arm and a leg.
We’re looking at Jackknife Cafe in Butchertown, where Erika Chavez-Graziano has added a fetching eatery to her Cellar Door Chocolates business; and Cake Flour, where top-rank pastry chef Claudia DeLatorre has opened a bright, colorful lunch space adjacent to her popular pastry shop.
