Why are Americans so bad about eating lunch? You know, that meal we’re supposed to eat sometime in between breakfast and dinner we often rush through or forget about completely? Well, isn’t it about time you take back your lunch hour? We think it is, and we can’t think of a better place to enjoy a delicious meal, timely service and a magnificent view than at Bon Appétit Restaurant in Dunedin, Florida! Okay, we might be tooting our own horn a little bit there but seriously, here are…

3 Awesome Reasons to Lunch at Bon Appétit Restaurant in Dunedin, FL

1. What you eat matters…

Food is the fuel our bodies run on, so it’s not really a surprise what we eat – or don’t eat – can directly affect how we function. Skipping meals can lead to excess snacking throughout the day. And if you happen to feel rushed and opt for fast food, highly processed or greasy food, according to the Harvard Business Review, you’re not saving yourself any time because you’ll be less productive for the rest of the day.

The alternative? Give yourself a well-deserved break and eat a real lunch. At Bon Appétit, we’ve always been open for lunch, offering favorites like our Chef’s “1943” Salad and the always delicious grilled Gulf Grouper on a brioche bun (pictured below), but recently our chef has also started preparing lunch specials to offer additional well-portioned, affordable options for our lunch guests. We change our lunch specials each month, check out our current delicious offerings.

2. Waterfront dining is awesome…

Sounds obvious, right? What you may not know is earlier this year, the Washington post reported a study showing significant evidence that being by the water reduces stress, anxiety and improves mental health. And just in case you didn’t know, Bon Appétit Restaurant is located right on the water, overlooking peaceful St. Joseph Sound (also, did we mention we have free parking?). So, here’s our tip for your list of New Year’s resolutions: make time to stop and smell the roses or in our case, stop and watch for dolphins.

3. If you must work during the lunch hour, make it memorable and worth your while…

If you’re a real go-getter and still want to make the most out of our lunch hour, opt for a networking or working lunch. Just because you’re “working” doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the food or the atmosphere. Plan to meet your clients, colleagues or boss for a working lunch and take advantage of Bon Appétit’s amazing views (with awesome health benefits as we mentioned earlier) while enjoying some delicious fare. Any guest you bring will certainly be impressed by your exquisite taste!
