Ideas Restaurant in the Grove is all about its name. The lunch specials reflect customers' input. When diners finish their meals Chef Felipe Perez often leaves the kitchen to cull reactions and take requests for future meals. The restaurant also takes e-mail suggestions into consideration when deciding upon  lunch specials.

I recently spoke to Ideas Restaurant's business manager and marketing maven Rebecca Perez. Here's what she had to say...

Ideas Restaurant Interactive Lunch Menu Specials

"That's something that we do. The menu changes on a daily and weekly basis. We send it to all our members weekly. The chef takes client requests and incorporates what they're asking for into the menu. The only thing that stays on the menu is cocido. That's a typical Spanish dish that people were consistently requesting. The special weekly menu is only for lunch.

Chef Felipe Perez is from Madrid, the Castilla y Leon region. He's worked at some of best hotels and restarants and he's a founding member of the legendary Casa Juancho. He's been with us 8 months...great addition. Felipe's quite a character. He comes out of the kitchen every time a table finishes eating, people love that."
