Restaurant News: The Green Gourmet Coming to Delray, Lunch for Under $10, Dumb 'n' Dumpster

•    Good for you, good for the environment. That's the idea behind Joey Giannuzzi's The Green Gourmet, a planet and palate-friendly meals-to-go market slated to open in West Delray in late September or early October. Formerly chef at Henry's in Delray, Giannuzzi will be dishing contemporary American comfort food for breakfast, lunch and dinner, all with an emphasis on organic, natural and sustainable ingredients. Lots of stuff for vegetarians and vegans too. The same philosophy will extend to the market itself, with energy-efficient kitchen equipment, recycled materials used in construction and biodegradable packaging.

•    Let's see, Wall Street gets a billion-gazillion dollars of

your money in a stimulus package, you get lunch for under $10 at

CityPlace. Well, it's better than nothing. As part of the West Palm

retail-residential complex's 1909 Founders Package, a number of

restaurants are offering cheapie lunch specials. (NOTE: Go here,

print out the page and submit it to the restaurant if you want to take

advantage of any of these.) At Brewzzi, any two items off its Lunch

Stimulus list go for $8.95; at Cheeburger Cheeburger you can get two

burgers and small fries for $9.09; Kona Grill is offering "Perfect

Pairings" of salads, soups, sandwiches and sushi for $8.75; at Mamma

Che Buono you can get any panino you want plus a cappuchino for $9.09.

(You gotta register on their website first, though.) .


 From the Stoopid File. Someone named Kevin Hallaran gave a whole new

meaning to dumpster diving when he fell asleep inside one of the big

garbage bins behind a Tampa restaurant. As usually happens, the bin got

picked up and dumped into a garbage truck early in the morning. . .

with Hallaran still inside. The truck crew apparently heard Hallaran

banging on the sides and screaming for help, so they called cops and

paramedics to get him out. Luckily, they heard him before activating

the truck's compactor, which would have really ruined the dumbfuck's

morning. Think about that next time your alarm clock goes off at 6 a.m.
