I would be happy to do away with lunch and just eat brunch and dinner.
Or maybe be European about it, and have tea and a late dinner.
Lunch is highly overrated.
I hate the lunch menus at restaurants. Crappy sandwiches, crappy soup, crappy salads, crappy pasta. Lunch entrees are the entrees that aren't special enough to eat at dinner. Dinner is steaks and grilled fish, buttery vegetables and multiple courses. Dinner is expensive for a reason, while lunch is cheap and forgettable.
While we're at it, let's eliminate breakfast in favor of brunch. Who wants to spend $4 on a bowl of oatmeal or a yogurt parfait? Brunch is salmon benedict at Tre Kronor and oreo flapjacks at the Bongo Room. All restaurants should be required to serve brunch until 3pm, seven days a week. Melissa and I actually walked out of Milk and Honey at high noon because they stop serving brunch at 12pm and neither of us wanted anything from the dismal sandwich menu.(bring out the tiny bobo violins!) I get annoyed by places that only serve brunch on weekends because it's always impossible to get a table on weekends and I want my brunch on a wednesday.
So from now on, I eat brunch, tea and dinner.
