Pret A Manger is one of my favorite lunch places. Not only because it offers freshly made and tasty food but because it brings memories from my years in the British capital. In London, Pret is in every corner, busy and buzzy with shoppers, students and executives looking for the next new Pret sandwich or salad.
Now in New York, Pret is a nostalgic treat. The summer menu is here to stay till Labor Day if not longer. If you like your salad for lunch, try the new Roasted Turkey, Bacon & Avocado salad - refreshing and tasty and with only 310 calories, don't feel guilty. If you'd rather have a sandwich, try the new Cheddar & Crunchy Veggie - pleasant and sinful as it comes with 500 calories. Tip: save half of it for an afternoon snack! But if lunch is not "your cup of tea", go for the light version of a yogurt pot; the new Pineapple, Cranberry & Apple Parfait is fruity and has only 180 calories.
Prices vary and can go from $3.59 (yogurt pot) to $7.49 (salad). For the entire list of the new summer menu, click here.
