PROFILE: Midtown Lunch’er “Elizabeth”

Every Tuesday I turn over Midtown Lunch to a random Midtown worker, for their favorite places to eat lunch in Midtown. This week, it’s Liz- a sales assistant for the company that owns the Food Network!  I love the Food Network… it’s like porn for fat guys.

Name: Elizabeth


Sales Assistant

Where in Midtown do you Work?:
Scripps Network (Food Network, HGTV, etc)  6th Ave. btw. 46+47th

Favorite Kind of Food:
  Too many to name, but probably Italian.

Least Favorite Kind of Food:
I pretty much like everything, although my least favorite is probably salad (or healthfood).  Editor’s Note:  If your favorite food is healthfood or salad, you are probably reading the wrong blog!

Favorite Place to Eat Lunch in Midtown:  The falafel sandwich with Baba @ Bread & Olive.

The “go-to” lunch place you and your co-workers eat at too often:  Probably Bread & Olive… also Manhattan Cafe

Place you discovered on  Daisy May’s BBQ cart.  Also, I discovered that Variety Cafe was no longer up to health code standards, which was a good thing to know because I used to eat there a lot.

If you could work anywhere (just because of the lunch) where would it be and why?  Dallas, TX on Oaklawn & Maple (where I used to work).  The job was bad- but Herrera’s (great Mexican food) was right down the street.  Also New Orleans, anywhere close to Crabby Jack’s. 


Well Liz, in defense of Variety Cafe, there are very few places in Midtown that haven’t been shut down for health code violations… (but I understand how you feel- I haven’t been back to Variety either).  I also haven’t been back to Bread & Olive since I wrote about it in June as part of “Falafel Week“.  I’ll have to check it out soon… Also, you’ll be interested to know that the one Daisy May’s cart still in Midtown for the winter has moved again!  Find out where, plus how you can be next week’s Profiled: Midtown Lunch’er- after the jump…



The Daisy May’s BBQ Cart has moved one block North to 50 btw. 6+7th (right next to the Taco cart with the sombrero!).  Stupid carts… always moving.  Drives me crazy.
