Chef Alex Jackson sends Grub Street the newly minted lunch menu at popular Mission hang The Corner (Mission & 18th). They recently added a Happy Hour, and in a sign of improving economic times, they’re serving up lunch again after discontinuing it in mid-’09, and now featuring a very nice $15 prix fixe that will change weekly. To all the home-office-based graphic designers and assorted others in the ‘hood, you now have a new reason to come out and see the sunlight. See the full menu below.

Also of note, for the day drinkers: You can down two Bellinis for a mere five bucks.
