After years and years of being open only in the hours its name indicates, Marti’s is trying something new. Its “dinner date” option kicked off last week and involves a full meal for two. The current iteration included shrimp and grits, salad, bread and a slice of Cecelia cake (to split), but it’ll keep changing up. Orders must be placed by Thursday at 4 p.m., and pick-up happens between 3 and 5 p.m. on Friday, so if you’re a regular white-collar joe, you may still have to duck out early to get your eat on. The cost is $40 plus tax. Check the restaurant’s Facebook page for menus and reminders.
