Hey folks, Nostrana is running a lunch special in August.  They just tweeted:

 

"3 course lunch + Rosé $22 every weekday in August starting today. Prepare the patio!"

Since nobody has posted in this thread forever, just wanted to say Nostrana is still damn good.  

 

Shared dishes between wife and kids:  Scallop app with pureed beets, butter lettuce salad, a pasta with a hearty ragu, the salmon with corn and tomatoes and the pole beans.

 

Everything was great, lots of flavor, well cooked.    The blackberry blueberry dessert is fantastic as well. 

 

Sometimes we forget about the old greats, and Nostrana is still great.

Nostrana is probably the restaurant I send people to the most.  It's big enough that it's not that hard to get into.  It's open lunch and dinner.  The menu is both interesting and accessible.  You can spend a lot of money or you can spend a little money and get full.  And pretty much everything is good. They probably have the best steak and the best rotisserie chicken in the city.  And they have one of the top 5 pizzas as well.

Yep, solid and I still love it. Also points for a great wine list and bar.
