Eten Food Co. is hoping to fill the cheap lunch hole on Las Olas with takeout-only soups, sandwiches, and prepared foods. It's a skinny yet trendy-looking space, with racks of wine on one wall and a glass-encased deli counter on the other. The menu is small, just soups and sandwiches, which each cost about $8. The house-roasted turkey sandwich is reminiscent of something you put together the day after Thanksgiving, with Swiss, greens, tomato, mustard mayo, and whole-grain bread. The best deal is the $7.50 to $9 lunch box that comes with a cup of soup or salad and a half sandwich. They also drop something sweet into each of the boxes. Those treats may be the best option, including a gooey chocolate truffle and a soft biscotti dipped in chocolate.
