Who took the eggplant off the buffet?

Many years ago when Joe’s Pasta House first came into being (our name was still Pasta Cafe then); we started offering our lunch buffet in addition to the lunch & dinner menu.  In the beginning, it was a limited buffet… with set menu items everyday!  One day I thought, wow we have customers who come in for lunch everyday; maybe we should offer different buffet items.  After mentioning this to Joe we decided we would alternate the main dish from Eggplant Parmigiana to something else.

Just for the record, it was me – Kassie, it was my fault the Eggplant was not on the buffet.  My poor husband spent the whole lunch hour fixing eggplant for our regulars (and happily, he was thrilled you all love it so much).  Since then, I am happy to say, Eggplant Parmigiana is a staple on our buffet & we have expanded our buffet to offer soup & other entrees options.  So, what is your favorite dish on the lunch buffet?
