Brown bag lunches never really had a good reputation. Seen as a lunch wanting of something to make it "more appealing" - less appalling.  Maybe it's the secrecy of what is concealed in such un-ornamental paper. Maybe it is the utilitarian feel of it all, a luxurious lunch just can't be packed inside such modest baggage. Whatever the pre-concieved notion, there is still that rare exception with the potential to blow your mind and your palate away.
