Obsessed: Adour's New Lunch Menu Satisfies Our Cravings (Sans Guilt)
We know how tempting that Five Guys burger is looking right now — it's barely Wednesday in the Longest Week Ever and you just want something comforting and delicious to make it all better. Right? Right, But, a fat juicy burger isn't the only way to satisfy your needs.
Instead, opt for a lunch that's equal parts classy, healthy, and
filling, by heading to Adour
, the serene dining spot nestled inside the St. Regis hotel and helmed by chef Alain Ducasse. This week, the resto launched a new lunch menu, inspired by Ducasse's new cookbook, Nature
, and chock-full of incredibly simple and delicious offerings.
Our favorites? The roasted farm-range chicken breast, the cookpot of farro grain, and the house-special mac 'n' cheese, to name just a few. Expect plenty of light-but-satisfying options with a dash of French countryside flavor — otherwise known as just the thing to break you out of a Subway rut. This is a fairly swank setting, so it probably won't make it into your weekly lunch rotation (so you'll still have plenty of time for burgers), but it's an ideal spot for a business meeting or a classy lunch date. Plus, choosing a healthy lunch means you can pat yourself on the back — even if it's one of those
days at work.
Adour, The St. Regis, 923 16th Street NW; 202-509-8000.
