The month of July has flown right by us! We had some amazing lunches at Edith Lucielle's Bait Shack & Wing Depot in Cedar Rapids these past few weeks, but the time has come for us to announced a new Listener Lunch destination. Every Tuesday in August, we will be back at a place we ate at in 2021 and 2019...

The Class Act Restaurant at the Kirkwood Hotel!

The Class Act describes itself online as "fine dining in a hip yet approachable atmosphere." Located inside the Hotel at Kirkwood Center, the restaurant is open daily with a 'Grab & Go Breakfast' menu, a lunch menu, and a dinner menu. The website reads:

"Featuring the area’s highest quality seasonal ingredients, The Class Act menus are far more creative than what you will find anywhere else. These creative twists and delicious new ideas are sure to entice your appetite."

Since the menu is a little bit different every time we visit, we've been able to try all sorts of great food at The Class Act! Here are some of the delicious things we've ordered during Listener Lunch:

If you and your coworkers would like to join us for Listener Lunch in August, you can get entered online HERE. If you're selected as a winner, we will meet the following Tuesday at 11:30 a.m. You're allowed to bring up to six people with you to lunch, and we will pick up the tab for everyone (alcohol excluded)! We can't wait to see you in the month of August!
