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.
