On deadline? Early afternoon conference call? Stressed out in general? Type A personalities won't be left to starve thanks to a speedy and satisfying (for the tummy and wallet) lunch option at Fratelli Lyon.
The recently introduced "Menu Veloce" (fast menu in Italiano) features this Design District favorite's best-sellers at lunchtime and is priced right at $15.
"We had a fisso (fixed) menu available for lunch, but there were too almost many options and courses," says manager Daniel Toral. "We wanted to offer the neighborhood, especially its time-pressed workforce, a lunch special that they could count on to be in and out in under an hour."
The Menu Veloce will be only be available throughout the summer, so be sure to grab it before you're left in the dust.
