Flatbread Community Oven's $8.95 lunch special isn't for the non-committal. Not only does the lunch special--any two half-portion items off of the pizza, flatbread, salad or sandwich menus--pack so much grub that you'll likely be snacking on it all day, it comes in its own obscenely large plastic to-go suitcase.
If you think about the deal mathematically, with 19 personal-sized wood-fired pizzas, six salads, four sandwiches, six wood-fired flatbreads and one pasta to choose from, that equals 1,296 different lunchtime options. Let's say one day you've got a hankering for hearty fare and feel like a personal-sized maple-fennel sausage pizza with caramelized onions and a pile of gooey mac and cheese. That'll be $8.95. Or maybe you're in more of a watching-the-waistline mood and have a craving for a veggie sandwich with artichoke pesto, portobello, asparagus, zucchini and goat cheese on rosemary-parmesan focaccia and a fresh tomato and mozzarella salad with housemade pesto and honey-balsamic vinaigrette. Still $8.95.
Flatbread's rad lunch deal is available Monday through Friday from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. at all three area locations: Downtown Boise, southeast Boise at Bown Crossing and Meridian. Have a BW Card? You can pick up your new lunch roommate, suitcase and all, for 40 percent off. That's only $5.37.
