PROFILE: Midtown Lunch’er “Mark”
I’m in England all week long, so every day I’m turning over the site to a different Midtown Lunch’er. Today, it’s Mark- a Digital Media salesperson who digs the raw fish, but doesn’t eat Lamb. Looking at his photo, I never would have guessed…
Occupation: Digital Media Sales
Where in Midtown do you Work?: 37th and 7th
Favorite Kind of Food: Sushi/Sashimi
Least Favorite Kind of Food: Lamb, don’t do it, no sir.
Favorite Place to Eat Lunch in Midtown: Homefront Deli – 41st btw. Park+5th. The Grilled Pastrami & Swiss is to die for! (and WOULD probably kill you if you ate it too often!) Burgers are great, and their cold sandwich packs some real heft without costing $10. Or try the “Roman” sandwich, which is basically an Italian Hero. Get it with the hot cherry peppers. You can get out with that sammy and a drink for like $6 or so. I guarantee you’ll be full. Also awesome is Turkey, swiss, bacon, L&T with Russian dressing, either on a hero or on an “everthing” bagel. The Greek salad with chicken is popular too – lots of chicken. Damn, now I’m really hungry! It gets crowded, it’s a little hole in the wall. There are two lines, one for hot & one for cold, so make sure you’re on the right one.
The “go-to” lunch place you and your co-workers eat at too often: Delmonico’s and/or Old Bridge Deli – 2 practically identical “we serve everything” delis across the street from each other on 41st & Lex. The only saving grace about Delmonico’s is that they make a brown rice Spicy Tuna roll and they don’t use mayo in it, just tuna & Sriracha sauce. I know, “healthy” sorry! :)
Place you discovered thanks to Midtown Lunch: 99 cent pizza - whats not to like? Especially on days when the wallet is feeling a bit “light”
If you could work anywhere (just because of the lunch) where would it be and why? Soho / Village – Chinatown, little Italy, Nobu (as a guest!)
Anything you’d like to ask the Midtown Lunch readers? Any good recommendations for Korean take out in K-Town area?
My favorite Korean Take Out place, after the jump…
Woorjip on 32nd btw. B’way and 5th. It’s like a Korean Cafe Zaiya. All sorts of pre packaged Korean goodies, plus a buffet by the lb. So much fun. Do you have your own favorite Korean take out place? Post it as a comment below…
