Ask Midtown Lunch: Late Lunch Specials
After my Monday post on the Naples 45 2pm Pizza deal, I got a lot of questions about other late lunch specials in Midtown. If you can wait until after 2pm, there are countless deals to be had by restaurants looking to pick up their afternoon business, or unload their lunch stuff before the deadness of Midtown dinner. Like I said before, I’m pretty ill-equiped to answer this one. It’s a miracle if I even make it to 12:30pm before eating lunch (nevermind getting to 2pm or later). So I’m going to need your help… If you know of a late lunch special, post it as a comment below.
Nevertheless, here are the few that I have written about:
- Ho Yip (45th btw. 5+6th) – After 2:15pm, the price of the by the lb. buffet at this Chinese place drops to $3.75.
- Naples 45 (45th btw. Lex+Vanderbilt) – After 2pm, the price of all pizza drops to $1.25 a slice.
- Cucina & Co. (Multiple Locations) – It’s different for every location, but Cucina drops the prices of a lot of their items at different times. I posted a list in August, but I’m not sure if it’s valid anymore. I guess it’s not surprising, but these places are owned by the same company that owns Naples 45.
There also was a late sushi special at Pranza, but apparently that doesn’t exist anymore.
I think early bird specials are more my thing. If getting somewhere before Noon got you a deal, I would be all over it! The only one of those I know about is Men Kui Tei (on 56th btw. 5+6th) which has a special set menu or Gyoza for super cheap before 12:15pm.
Do you know of a late lunch special in Midtown Manhattan? (Or an early special for that matter…) Post it as a comment below.
