my employer (roll international) is opening its own environmentally-conscious and healthy cafe on premises here in west LA.  the orchard will offer gourmet meals prepared with seasonal, local, organic produce and sustainable meats and fish.  here's a list of next week's lunch specials, all for under $8 a pop:

Monday: Pistachio Crusted Halibut with Spicy Yogurt served with Smashed Purple Potato and Braised Yellow Beans ($7.90)

Tuesday: Greek Style Lamb and Eggplant Lasagna Moussaka with Ground Lamb and Bechamel served with Roasted Lemon Potatoes ($6.95)

Wednesday: Molasses Glazed Leg of Lamb with Roasted Golden Beet and Wild Mushrooms, and Parmesan Orzo ($7.90)

Friday: Baja Style Fish Tacos with Papaya, Lime, and Cabbage Slaw, Pico De Gallo, Verde Rice, Red Beans, Fresh Guacamole, and Fresh Corn Tortillas ($4.25)

we are just too lucky.  yum!  i can't wait to use my employee card.

3 days of fish and 2 days of lamb? Still sounds yummy though

yeah, i noticed that, too, but then i realized our demands for menu diversity aren't always reflective of sustainable ingredients. i think it's probably evidence that they're cooking what's in season and locally available.
