For the first time in its ten-year history, Suzanne Goin’s A.O.C. turns its attentions towards lunch, offering dishes one can only find by day now that her restaurant is up and running in the former Il Covo space. Served from 11:30 A.M. to 2:30 P.M. starting today, exclusive lunch-only dishes include pulled pork cheek sandwiches on focaccia, spaghetti with clams, nettles, and green garlic, and grilled market fish served with beets, cucumber, and feta yogurt. In addition, A.O.C. dishes like a $16 manchego burger, “ode to a turkey club” salad, and egg and gryuere sandwich on brioche will be available all day, with the full menu below for your perusal.
