Beginning May 20, avec, the West Loop Mediterranean small plates restaurant, will begin lunch service. It will be open for lunch weekdays from 11:30 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.

"Opening for lunch was a eureka moment," executive chef Paul Kahan says. "Avec is such an amazing place, it was like why didn't we think of this earlier?"

Chef de cuisine Perry Hendrix's menu, which can be viewed in full below, includes a burger inspired by the restaurant's signature chorizo-stuff dates. The avec burger is a chorizo and beef patty with bacon, date mostarda and piquillo pepper aioli. All sandwiches, which include a slow roasted pork on ciabatta as well as a charred beet tartine, will come with a choice of marinated lentil salad or spiced chips. There are also small plates of smoked whitefish salad and a charred snap pea tabbouleh, along with large plates including wood oven paella.

See all of avec's new lunch menu below and get ready to fight for a spot at lunchtime in the perpetually busy spot.
