MIAMI HERALD -- Feb 14 -- It's Just Lunch has stuck in there, and today claims a presence in 75 cities. $1,500 annual membership for 14 lunch dates. An hourlong face-to-face interview follows. Discretion is built into the system. Pannucci works with about 50 restaurants, where she has an understanding with the maitre d': No one is to utter, 'It's Just Lunch.' After the date, Pannucci's staff calls clients to get feedback about whether it was a good setup. ''That's what separates us from all the other services out there: the personal touch,'' she said. She advertises in the Miami New Times and seven airline magazines, and is listed in the Yellow Pages. Members who enroll a friend get an extra first date. She currently has a total of 1,000 members, she said.
