This month, chef Russell Jackson launched a special value priced Mondays menu at his Embarcadero restaurant Lafitte on Pier 5.

Monday is typically a slow restaurant day. So this follows similar promotions like Jardiniere’s Monday Night Dinners, to help boost business. The deal runs until March 26.

The lunch offer is dubbed “Soup and Sannie Monday,” a gourmet soup and sandwich combo for $12, available from noon until 2 pm.

Monday dinner features a three course prix fixe for $39, served from 5:30 to 8:30 pm. The dinner choices will always include a vegetarian option. To give you a better idea of what to expect, see last week’s menu below.
