The $9.99 All You Can Eat Buffet Takes Two More Steps To Becoming Extinct in Midtown
Al Baraka, Midtown’s best only Turkish buffet, is now Kanaat Turkish Restaurant. The chef, food and lunch buffet are exactly the same, but it is now $10.95 (up from $9.95 before). The lamb shanks are still on the buffet, so it’s worth the extra buck, but the current trend of lunchtime price increases worries me that soon all buffets will need special exemptions to be included in the Midtown Lunch’ing price range.
Another popular buffet that has broken the $10 threshold, after the jump…
Curry Dream, the Indian Buffet on 39th St. btw. 5+6th has also raised the price of their all you can eat buffet from $9.95 to $10.95. For Indian lunch buffets under $10, there’s still Kashmir on 8th Ave. btw. 39+40th, and the West Tandoori Club on 37th btw. 7+8th both still sitting pretty at $9.95.
In the end, as long as the lunch buffet at Spice Fusion (8th Ave. btw. 47+48th) remains at $9.95 I won’t go into panic mode. Hopefully winning best Indian Buffet in the 2007 Midtown Lunch Readers’ Poll won’t go to their head.
