The deal: At the bar at the West End's Ris, the "power hour" lunch special includes an entree and drink for $15.

The deets: Chef Ris Lacoste has introduced a new bar special, which runs Monday-Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. (for the late lunchers). For $15, the power hour lunch offers a choice of an entree and an Abita Light draft beer, a glass of house wine or a nonalcoholic beverage.

The lunch menu features selections such as spicy shrimp tempura on napa cabbage slaw, mussels with tomato and chorizo, housemade ricotta cavatelli, and the chef's cheeseburger. Lacoste's popular daily dinner specials — meatloaf on Monday, spaghetti and meatballs on Wednesday, or fish tacos on Friday — are available for lunch as half portions. View the full menu here.
