Session Kitchen's Monday Funday Saves the Day

Chef Parker of Session Kitchen’s gets it. He understands what it's like to have made it (barely) through a Monday only to realize you don't have anything planned for dinner. Yet you want to have a good and healthy meal with the family. That's why he created "Monday Funday," with a fixed-price menu for $45.It's a multi-course dinner for four or five (depending on appetites). The deal doesn't have to only be for two adults and two kids - any combination of people is fine including all-adults (because you may *gasp* need a night away from the kids on a Monday). 

The meal is served family-style (pass the pickles, please) and the menu changes monthly. One month, it was fried chicken and all the fixin’s. We visited in April when the meal started with out-of-this-world pork belly steamed buns with arugula and some awesome BBQ sauce, bread and butter pickles, sweet chile slaw with cabbage and fennel and a big pot of meaty smoked shiitake mushrooms with cabbage and other goodies. The main entree was a really big pot of noodles in a rich, beefy broth, vegetables and chunks of very tender steak on top.

I had two teenagers with me, one of whom is the pickiest eater this side of the Mississippi. This “buttered-noodles-only” kid gobbled up everything. Everything! I think it was the hip atmosphere, great-looking and great-smelling food that just enticed him. Four of us ate really well and still had enough to bring home for another meal. At $45, it’s a heck of a deal and a great way to make Monday a day to look forward to.
We love Session Kitchen anyway (read about our past experiences there). Monday Funday just gives us an extra reason to go. Visit Session Kitchen’s website for details or call to find out what the monthly menu is for Monday Funday. We're told May's meal is on a Greek theme with pickled chickpeas/olives, fried green tomato fattoush salad, Greek yogurt and roasted sliced lamb gyros, oregano vinaigrette and dill tzatziki sauce.
