File photo

In time for the holiday season, Eddie Merlot's (1502 Illinois Road South) is open for lunch service from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, through Dec. 21.

The one-page lunch menu includes a range of items, from burgers to salads, including items that aren't on its dinner menu. One of sous chef Bret Frank's favorite dishes special to the lunch menu is the tuna noodle salad – a mix of sweet and spicy Thai noodles, green and red shredded cabbage and tuna seared in sesame oil.

Dishes range from $12 and $13 for the burgers to about $30 for the filets.

The restaurant is open during December, Frank says, to accommodate an influx of holiday shoppers.

Reservations for lunch and dinner are available online or by calling 459-2222.
