Sophie’s Cuban Update (Free Food Edition!), Midtown Links and the end of the week wrap up…



Every week I call, and the opening date for the new Sophie’s Cuban on 56th btw. 5+6th changes… so yesterday I went down to the actual location.



Looks like they are ready to go.  The tables for the seating area in the back are supposedly getting in today.  PLUS I was told the “Official” opening date is going to be Wednesday, March 14th AND there will be free food!!!  That’s right.  Mark it on your calendars.  All the food is free at the Sophie’s Cuban grand opening, a week from Wednesday.

I love free food days in Midtown.  You get to see just how long people in suits (who probably make six figures a year) are willing to wait for a free $8 lunch.  Fun fun! 

Acqua Pazza closes, Rats in an ABP, Steak in a strip club, and Fatburger opening in Midtown (is Baja Fresh Next???).  All that and more after the jump…


Next week… the Midtown Lunch guide to beating the All You Can Eat Chinese Buffet!!!  Have a good weekend…


  • Yey, finally a Sophies Cuban date!!!

  • Baja Fresh in the city???.. I hope so!!

  • Sigh………………………………………………..
    soooo far away!!! Hehehe.

  • “The question gets asked all the time, but the company won’t go into a market unless it can command a “prominent presence.”

    Chick -Fil – A commands a prominent presence in New Jersey???
