The Big Question 

It's 11 a.m. You start to get impatient. Your knees bob. You begin noticing the activity around you. The shuffling of papers gets louder and louder, while the topics of discussion get lighter and lighter. The morning coffee has been digested leaving behind a raw emptiness that begins to gnaw at you. As you lose focus on the work at hand, your mind keeps straying to a question that is suddenly begging for an answer: What's for lunch?

No sooner have you allowed yourself to frame it than Dilbert sticks his head over your cubicle and absently blurts out the very same question. Now the entire weight of the decision is on your shoulders. You're expected to name a restaurant, major food group, or ethnic cuisine that is not only nutritious, but also delicious.

With this installment of Dish, we offers ways out of this daily lunch quandary. We'll give you the tools to decide by taking you in, out and around the Triangle where you'll glimpse the many ways we lunch.

Pull out and save this Dish, and you'll not only impress your friends but you can also avoid uttering the lamest, most familiar and completely uninformed answer to the lunch question: "I don't know. What do you wanna do?"
