Left Bank [happy hour]

I have been a big fan of Left Bank for a while, and they just gave me a reason to become an even bigger fan:  HAPPY HOUR! Every day from 5 – 7pm.  That’s right, every single day of the week. There’s lots of awesome specials, including 1/2 price wine and specialty cocktails and $2 beers (those prices make me happy). :)  If you start getting hungry after all that drinking, there’s a happy hour menu that gives you an app & a pasta or two small plates and an app for only $20.  Yes, please!  I enjoyed several cans of Narragansett (knowing it was only $2 made it taste even better) and shared the lobster puffs with champagne cream and strozzapretti with lamb sugo, caramelized onions, and pine nuts with my colleague. We threw in a chocolate brownie a la mode afterward just for fun.  Chef Laurence Edelman came by to say hello and brought us some of his amazing dumplings — Thank you so much, Chef! And thanks to our fabulous Louisiana bartender, Claiborne. We’ll be back again soon!

Thank you, Chef Laurence, for these delicious dumplings! Juicy pork & beef filling… Mmm mmm good.
