Anna Wintour's go-to lunch is causing a stir.

The average individual probably doesn’t spend nearly $80 on a daily lunch trip, but that’s exactly what Anna does.

According to the recently released Anna: The Biography by Amy Odell (via the New York Post), "Wintour’s go-to lunch, after Condé Nast moved offices to 1 World Trade Center, was a steak and Caprese salad without the tomatoes from the nearby Palm restaurant.”

Per Grub Street, this meal (plus tax and tip) would come out to $77.33.

And as the Post notes, a Caprese salad without tomatoes is simply just cheese.

The book also featured some quotes from one of Anna's landscapers who apparently tried to convince her to grow a vegetable garden. However, Anna rejected the ideas because she “doesn’t like vegetables."

Since she’s not a big fan of vegetables in general, it makes sense that her Caprese salad wouldn’t include any tomatoes.

Anna is a wealthy woman with a distinct taste in fashion, so it also makes a ton of sense that she has a distinct taste when it comes to the food she enjoys the most.
