The lunch menu, popular with a business crowd and travelers, features soups, salads, sandwiches and pastas ranging from homemade French onion soup to a New York strip salad and grilled turkey, portabella mushroom and other paninis. In the evening, M Avenue's menu includes a $5 trio of beef sliders, grilled chicken quesadilla and other specialty appetizers, plus filling fare such as a boneless ribeye steak and pan-seared whitefish.
