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!
