Antonello Ristorante – Santa Ana Launches: “3 For 20 Under 40” Lunch for Busy Execs Offers 3 Courses For $20 Served In Less Than 40 Minutes


Antonello Ristorante – Santa Ana at South Coast Plaza Village has introduced “3 For 20 Under 40,” a new weekday lunch menu aimed at busy executives who wish to enjoy a 3-course lunch for under $20 in less than 40 minutes, announced Managing Partner Thad Foret. Executive Chefs Salvatore Ferrara and Gino Buonanoce, who will unveil the rotating menu effective immediately, say that the new lighter, prix fixe offerings are in keeping with Antonello Ristorante – Santa Ana’s retooled menu emphasizing higher flavor profiles, more organic ingredients and an overall lighter approach to preparing them.

“There’s a perception that dining at Antonello Ristorante – Santa Ana means spending a lot of money and luxuriating through a long, slow-moving meal,” said Foret. “While that mode of dining is desired by some of our valued guests, many others simply don’t have the time or inclination for that kind of experience. They might want to enjoy a great meal, but not have the time or budget for indulgence. I think the ‘3 For 20 Under 40’ is the perfect answer for the time-conscious busy executive seeking the an unparalleled lunch without breaking the bank.”
