I am excited to announce that Baby Jane officially launched their "Unplugged" lunch on July 1st! What does this whole unplugged lunch even mean? Well, as you walk in for lunch with your friends or co-workers they will ask if you’d like to leave your phone at the door, and in exchange they will hand over a “bucket o’fun.”
In recent years, technology has become unavoidable in restaurants. Diners have turned into food paparazzi, hustling to get the perfect snapshot of a well-plated dish. But the spirit of Baby Jane, like its namesake "Baby Jane" Holzer, is one of stylish rebellion. So, in tribute to that iconoclasm, BabyJane launches their "Unplugged Lunch," encouraging all diners to check their phones at the door in exchange for a "Bucket o' Fun" stocked with adult coloring books, magic markers, slinkies, table-top basketball games, mini-Jenga sets and play dough.
"Baby Jane is fun, naughty and a little mischievous," says owner Jason Odio. "And we want to encourage that playful environment where people can disconnect from their screens and have a fun, midday break."
Guests are invited to hang out and take a "recess" from the office over lunch items like Chef Michael Beltran's famous soy caramel chicken wings and the double-patty McChug Burger made with a homemade bun and in-house cured pickles. I personally tried the wings, pork belly, and the delicious pork belly Banh Mi sandwich with a side of scrumptious fries.
In addition, all lunch goers will receive a complimentary craft beer with their entree and can opt for the Daily lunch special of Chef Michael Beltran’s famous Soy Caramel Glazed Wings and a choice of Caesar Salad or our Beet & Peach salad for $10. It can’t get much better than that!
Unplugged Lunch will occur every Friday during the hours of 12-3pm.
