Adventures in Economicalness: Deli-Style Lunch

The Nun forwarded me this press release from K-Paul's, which apparently started serving lunch last week. (According to their website, K-Paul's was previously only open for dinner.) I am not sure if the focus is on takeout or a burn-and-turn lunch, but both options are available as of now. Admittedly I have never been to K-Paul's, but it's always been considered a white table cloth establishment. Strange to see them serving $10 sandwiches, but if the food's good then what do I care.

I've never been either, but take it from someone who works next door, I spend about half of every day enjoying the wonderful aromas coming over the wall. It's nice to have another option at this price point in the Quarter. Sounds like they might be trying to attract some of the same lunch market as NOLA around the corner, which also has sandwiches etc. and sides in the $10-$15 range.

Amen, Reader 20K. I was unaware of NOLA's lunch deal. Sounds like something I need to try.

A long time ago they had a "kitchen" deli upstairs and served a poor boy lunch. I had a mashed potato poor boy that dumbfounded me!
