It’s Lunchtime! What Will You Spend?

May 2nd, 2012 by Kyra Deblaker-Gebhard · 1 Comment · Capitol Hill

The writers and editors at The Hill is Home tend to agree on a lot of things—that the Hill is a great place to live, that pictures of pandas being artificially inseminated are disturbing at best, and that certain celebrity chefs are just a little too full of themselves. What we can’t agree on are the high prices that some of our favorite food establishments charge for basic lunchtime fare.

I’ve made it clear in the past that I don’t like paying a lot of money for an under-dressed sandwich. Others feel that a well-crafted sandwich, a substantial salad or a perfectly prepared crepe are well worth their high price tag. After all, a high price tag—in a restaurant, for a house– is a sign that a neighborhood is flourishing.

Now I want to know what you think. What is your lunch time over-under?

    I’m generally a brow bagger, but I’ll occasionally spend $10 for a fantastic Sweetgreen salad. If it’s an eat in salad, I’m more ready to shell out the bucks. Le Pain Q comes to mind. But the best ones are cheaper and eat out — i.e., pastrami or GMan at Mangeliardos or the meatball sub at Prego.
