CP's .25 martinis with prix fixe?

vegan73 Oct 16, 2012 09:11 AM

i thought the martini deal was only with the order of an entree but i saw someone suggest on another thread that they could be had with the prix fixe as well. does anyone have any experience with this?

    I do notice on their web site that there is now a three-martini limit. Surely people weren't taking advantage of CP's generosity. :)

      25 cent martinis are always available M-f regardless of item ordered at lunch. Have hit he 3 limit multiple times but never asked for 4 because who would?

        i'm greatly looking forward to it. i don't remember that about CP when i lived there 20 years ago but i also didn't drink martinis back then :)

          With those $0.25 martinis, (I like their Cosmos) you should consider ordering the Shrimp Hennican...my favorite app at CP. Sometimes, I have a double order for my entree. Favorite dessert is the Praline Parfait, unless the Strawberry Short Cake is in season.

      Since the prix fixe includes an entree, you are qualified for the 25 cent martinis if you make that choice.

          Glad to be of help. I was at CP for lunch in August and had the prix fixe lunches, and the .25 martinis, both at CP, and then again a few days later at their sister restaurant, Cafe Adelaide, in the CBD.
