Mandler’s Vindication, Midtown Links & the end of the week wrap up…

Posted to the Midtown Lunch Flickr Photo Group by joshbousel 

Last Friday, I reported that the opening of the new Mandler’s Sausage Co. in Midtown (8th Ave. btw. 39+40th) was going to be dealyed a week.  I was asked to take it down, and various NY blogs were assured by their PR company that they would open this past Monday as planned.  Well, not only did they not open, they are not opening today or even Monday the 26th as I had originally reported.

Now, due to a problem with ConEd the opening date has been pushed back even farther.  They are targeting April 5th, but I will keep you updated in case anything changes (which I’m sure it will).  Why do I care so much?  What’s the fuss, you ask?  Sausages with Zucchini Fries.  What more could you want in life (for lunch)?  Sausage Watch 2007 is on! (Everytime I write about this place it comes out sounding weird…) 

Fancy assed boxed lunch, Inside Edition comes to Times Square, and a preview of next week’s posts- after the jump…

Next week… a fried calamari sandwich that’s only available on Tuesdays, and more Bi Bim Bap!  Have a nice weekend…

  • Chances are the opening is delayed by the NYC Buildings Dept. Con Edison probably cannot turn on their gas services until the NYC DOB clears it which can take months and months. The DOB inspectors always do half-ass inspection jobs and delay these openings and they probably do it out of their need for job security so they can keep on going back to the same stores for unfinished inspections. Tough luck Mandler!
