So you're down on your luck but sick of eating Cheerios for lunch ... and dinner.
But you're in luck! You found $30 in change underneath the couch cushions (it's a big couch) and you and your sweetheart are gonna spend it in style in Darien! You're buying the finest lunch that money can buy—if the money is $15.
Oh, and your sweetheart doesn't like pizza. Breaks out in hives even at the smell of it, so no pizza places. Diners, delis, doughnut shops and coffee shops are out, too—all those are against sweetheart's religion (by purest coincidence, they happen to be covered in other Readers' Choice contests).
At this point, you're ready to dump sweetheart, but suddenly you remember that there are at least five possibilities, all without having to spend money on gas to drive out of town.
Where will you go? (Remember, if there's a waiter involved, you've got to tip at least 15 percent—$2.25 of your $15 per person budget, leaving you with $12.75. On the other hand, you can order a free glass of water if they serve that.)
