Wednesday's Delicious Deal: Art and Soul

Art and Soul's baby cakes come packaged to go to get diners in and out in 45 minutes for lunch

Delicious deals keep rolling into the new year, and with today's bargain, time is money.

Capitol Hill's new Art and Soul restaurant is offering a three-course “Filibuster Buster” lunch for $24, and diners will receive their bill and dessert within 45 minutes of being seated. So they can get back to their important web surfing ... er ... office duties.

First course choices include Brunswick stew, the pantry hoecake (a cornmeal cake topped with blue cheese, grapes, arugula and pickled onion) or Capitol Hill salad. For entrées, choose from butternut squash ravioli with trumpet mushrooms and spinach, Maryland-style fried chicken (holla!) with buttermilk mash potatoes and sausage gravy or grilled trout with roasted beets, fennel and horseradish cream.

The restaurant's baby cakes, five miniature seasonally flavored cakes, arrive packaged to go at the end of the meal.
