Oh, hey: The Dutch quietly started serving lunch yesterday. In fact, Carmellini et al. are being so quiet about “Lunch Time at The Dutch” that reps didn’t want to send over a menu until next week, when all the kinks will have been smoothed over (reservations won’t be accepted till Monday; in the meantime, they’re taking neighborhood walk-ins today and tomorrow). But let’s face it— the Dutch is now the place to go if you’re in from out of town (witness recent dispatches from Michael Bauer of the San Francisco Chronicle and Jonathan Gold of LA Weekly), and there’s no way this was going to hold. So with thanks to our covert luncher, let’s have a look at the menu now being served.
