In 2010, this deal will cost you 20 bucks and a dime, but for now, it's 20 bucks and nine cents. Acclaimed French-Asian restaurant Le Lan is toasting 2009 with a $20.09 menu. Honor two of your New Year's resolutions -- eating better and saving money -- with chef Chad Starling's inventive, satisfying menu.
You'll have your pick of three entrees (a braised beef short rib with apple-chile puree, yu choy and a shrimp dumpling; curried trout with black rice, edamame puree, cilantro vinaigrette and pea shoots; and marinated tofu with wild mushrooms, couscous and yu choy) and two desserts (molten chocolate cake with cardamom ice cream and candied orange, and Vietnamese coffee creme brulee with a cinnamon beignet). Sure beats the $20 a jumbo pizza would set you back.
The $20.09 menu will be featured at Le Lan throughout the month of January, so get the new year off to a tasty start.
