New Lunch Menu at No. 246 Features Squid Ink Spaghetti and More

Tired of rotating through the same old lunchtime staples? No. 246 in Decatur is introducing a new lunch menu sure to rekindle the love affair with your midday meal. Available on weekdays from 11 a.m.-3 p.m., the new menu features favorites like fried calamari and peppers, crispy cheese, garlic bread with pesto or the No. 246 meatball ($5-$11). Pasta dishes are rich with flavors: squid ink spaghetti with Georgia white shrimp and chilies, smoked bacon and crispy farm egg in strozzapreti carbonara, and shell-shaped lumache with fennel sausage, ancho pepper, garlic and rapini are three comforting pasta dishes ($10-$13). Seasonal plates include Enchanted Springs trout with sunchokes, Brussels sprouts and pancetta ($16) or Springer Mountain chicken accompanied by Mercier apples, celery root and sherry bacon agro dolce ($18). If pizza suits the mood, selections include mushrooms with almond-arugula pesto; pineapple, prosciutto, mozzarella and Calabrian chilis; fattoria with bacon, greens, tomato and ricotta and the classic Margherita ($10-$13). Sandwiches might get messy, stacked with porchetta, crispy Georgia white shrimp or the No. 246 meatball "burger." Chopped, flatbread and Caesar salads can be topped with chicken, shrimp or steak for extra protein ($9-$12+). Your brown bag? That yogurt and granola bar can stay in the office fridge until tomorrow.
