Forget the fast-food chains and their super-sized combos. Allium at the Four Seasons has a new 500-calorie lunch that tastes way more sinful than it actually is — no joke. For just $25, you and the ladies who lunch can "indulge" on a gold baby beet salad with Greek yogurt; wild Alaskan halibut with smoked fingerling potatoes, ramps, asparagus, and chimichurri; and a 99% pure chocolate sorbet.
So, before you start talking about how tight your skirt is, this lunch is less decadent than the handfuls of treats you grab from the candy jar. And to make you feel even better about the calories you're consuming, almost all of the ingredients are sourced from local farms in the Midwest. Fast food what?
Allium, 120 East Delaware Place (between Michigan Avenue and State Street); 312-799-4900.
