The W Hotel is not usually described as budget-friendly, but they're offering a new deal that's simply too good to pass up! Trace restaurant at the W Hotel in downtown Austin is now offering a weekday Lunch on the Fly lunch deal for $12, and it gets you a very generous entree, side, and boxed dessert to enjoy after your meal at the table or to go. 

Trace's Lunch on the Fly is available Monday - Friday from 11am-2:30pm. While the lunch deal includes many options, you can also order from the larger regular lunch menu, if that's your preference. Lunch specials change weekly, but during our visit, some options included a Cuban Sandwich, a Caprese Sandwich, or a Roasted Chicken Sandwich. Sides also vary but include your choice of options like Crispy Brussels Sprouts, Charred Broccoli, Chilled Melon Soup, Beet and Tomato Salad, or Blistered Shishitos and Figs. Cookies also change daily, but we really loved the Apricot Peanut Butter cookies when we dropped in for lunch.

For an additional charge, you can add a cocktail or a mocktail to your lunch. Some of the mocktails include concoctions like Jalapeno Cucumber Lemonade and  Lavender Lemonade. Zero Proof mocktails are $4 and glasses of wine are $7. Add coffee, soda, or tea for only $2.

This one of a kind lunch deal lets you sit in the lap of luxury without putting a dent in your wallet. It's a great option for organizing a group lunch, work lunch, or just to sneak away from work for a treat with friends! If parking downtown is what's holding you back, rest assured knowing that valet is complimentary with your meal!
