Aubri Lane’s brings lunch back

MILLEDGEVILLE — Downtown Milledgeville’s Aubri Lane’s Restaurant lost the lunch crowd soon after its opening almost four years ago and didn’t recreate the early option. Owner Jason Medders decided to reopen the service starting Tuesday, Feb. 26.

Customers yearned for a high-caliber environment to host business lunches or bring prospective employees.

“Lately, I felt that our dinner crowd has built such a strong customer base that there is a lot of need for our lunch. Anything people have going on in town that they want to do a nice lunch for, they look to us to do it. Now, we give them that chance,” Medders said.

The 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday through Friday lunch hours present affordable items from $4 to $12. Pork belly sliders and the red rooster sandwich with grilled or fried chicken, honey-sriracha sauce and ranch dressing were lunch relaunch hits this week.

All sandwiches are served with jalapeno cole slaw and house chips. Inventive seafood-themed appetizers and lunch entrees are made fresh in house.

“We make everything from scratch. It makes a huge difference,” the Aubri owner said. “It’s better for you. The flavors are tremendous, and the quality of the food is high.”

Lunch wine specials for $3 house and $5 for any menu listing are a nice compliment as well.

The restaurant continues to evolve. Medders said it’s been difficult erasing a preconceived notion that the space is too nice and expensive for casual dining.

Tables have a simple look to alter the image. 

Customers can order a great dinner for two Tuesday through Saturday at affordable price points.

Last summer, Aubri Lane’s began a $29 dinner for two option. A couple gets one appetizer, along with one salad and entrée a piece from a limited special menu.

Change is never shunned at Aubri’s.
