Varga Wants You to Lunch a Bunch

Varga Bar, the new pinup-themed eat-and-drinkery from chef R. Evan Turney and partner George Anni, has been up an running for a couple of weeks now, breathing new life into a part of Washington Square West that isn’t 13th Street. Starting this Sunday the 7th, the restaurant will open for lunch, serving the same diet-blowing items — like truffled mac and cheese and smoked ribs — that are on the dinner menu. And, of course, the many craft-beer-fueled taps will be flowing.

And because Varga loves Restaurant Club members so much, they are giving away five $20 gift certificates so you can check it out for yourself. Send an e-mail with your name, phone number, and e-mail address to by 5 p.m. this Friday, June 5th. Winners will be contacted early next week. If you aren’t 21, don’t be naughty and try to enter — Varga will be checking IDs both when the gift certificates are picked up and when they are used. Good luck!

Varga Bar, 10th and Spruce streets; 215-627-5200.
