The Lunch Before Thanksgiving Post, Midtown Links & the end of the short week wrap up…

Make no mistake about it, meals on the day before Thanksgiving are very important.  There’s alot of eating to be done tomorrow- but don’t make the enormous error of starving yourself the day before in anticipation of Turkey, stuffing and all the fixins.  Starving yourself will result in a shrunken stomach, that won’t be able to take the onslaught that is surely to happen tomorrow afternoon.  The best thing you can do is stuff yourself today… stretch that stomach out as far as it will go, and tomorrow you will wake up ready to win the game!

I had a few ideas for lunch today.  The first one is obvious.  If you are geting a half day, wait until you get off and go somewhere else for a *good* lunch.  Midtown sucks.  Failing that, I think an all you can eat buffet is the perfect pre-thanksgiving day lunch.  Stuff your face, stretch that stomach out and prepare your body for the big feast tomorrow.  Here’s some of the cheap buffets in Midtown that you can “train” at:

  • Rangole, 46th btw. 5+6th, Cheap Indian
  • Arang, 32nd btw. 5+B’way, Korean & Sushi
  • Todai, 32nd btw. Mad+5th, Japanese
  • Al Baraka, 55th btw. 3+Lex, Turkish

If you need motivation, picture how disappointed your Mom will be tomorrow when you don’t have room for seconds.  Prepare yourself properly.  Godspeed.

For Midtown Links you definitely want to know about, plus a sneak peak at next week’s lunch spots- after the jump.


Next week, I finally get around to a +/- of Two Boots!  (A quick preview… one of the boots is good, the other- not so much).  PLUS a full review of Chiyoda on 41st.  Have a Happy Thanksgiving and I’ll see you next week!

  • Hahaha. Yummy! BTW, my friends and I checked out this place in midtown yesterday for dinner. Really cheap Russian food. It’s pretty far west but I thought it was good so. Uncle Vanya’s on 54 b/w 8 & 9.
