Brown bag or silver bento?


The Wall Street Journal calls it The New Power Lunch—tony grub in fancy boxes at the desk.

Yeah, very powerful.

I guess an argument could be made for health.

The power lunchboxes (still makes me giggle to type that) are purses, Dutch microwavable lashups, insulated Gourmet Getaway bags, a bento box of microwavable containers (bento boxes are pretty neat Japanese lunch boxes), etc.

Many contain small containers—to push the desk-bound diner toward smaller dabs of stuff.

They fill these containers with couscous, salmon salad, nuts, chicken breasts, steamed fish.

At one office, a competition developed for the coolest foods.

Oh, yes, better leftovers. It’s come to that.
