One of our favorite neighborhood restaurants is Lamarca, a pasta and cheese shop next to our favorite frozen yogurt place, Flurt. So many good places to eat in our neighborhood! On Thursdays, they have a wonderful lunch special: meat lasagna. The meal is kind of expensive (around $15, which is pricey for an everyday lunch!) but it comes with a salad, lots of delicious bread, and is a nice once-in-a-while treat.
The salad dressing is also really delicious and the bowl of salad is quite large:
The bread is served warm with super creamy butter (much creamier than other restaurant butters!) and it’s enough for a light meal (which is what Kristen did when we went!) My meat lasagna:
The lasagna is a huge dish and I couldn’t finish it all so I took it home to eat later. If you split it into two meals, it’s pretty affordable! I like their other pastas and their tangy tomato sauces – Ken and I always order from there when we’re too lazy to cook (which is actually quite often). They’re not open on Sundays and I think it’s a family-owned restaurant, so definitely check it out!
