Today I had the most lovely gourmet lunch at The Dirty Apron. This lunch spot is a cooking school combined with a deli cafe / specialty foods shop.
This was not a cheap lunch, my soup and sandwich coming to a total of $15. However, it was worth treating myself for the quality and delicious flavors. This isn’t your typical soup-sandwich lunch, these flavors are on the next level! I ordered:
The grilled Prosciutto sandwich: watercress, brie, fig, balsamic onions. $10
A small Roasted Garlic and Potato Soup with croutons. $4 (If they ask “do you want croutons?” the answer is yes. If they ask “do you want a little bit of baguette on the side?” the answer is yes.)
This was the soup of the day, which along with their lunch specials and salads, changes daily. It is clear that everything here is prepared fresh in small batches. It’s also nice to see the staff take pride in the food they serve.

Thank you to Anya, who writes at Little City Musings, for recommending this place! Anya also recommends their pulled pork sandwich, which I’ll have to try another time.
