The Chef: Lisa
The Menu: Some of the best darned cheese-free quesadillas we've ever had.

Lisa even whipped up her own guacamole, replete with more fresh lime juice, cilantro, and punches of jalapeño. A salad of mixed greens and cherry tomatoes provided some relief from the spicier dishes on the menu.
The Goods: Um, yum. Let's just get it out of the way that this was one of the more impressive meals that's been created in our VNHQ kitchens. You already know how we like to share our lunchtime goodness with guests, and today we were delighted to have Kit and Melissa of Good Asian Drivers join us. They've been on a nationwide music and performance-art tour for six weeks and had just enough time to stop in for lunch before heading down to LA later tonight. Here is the highly entertaining pair with the VN team:
