Will We Ever Find Another Yum Thai?
While Yum Thai (44th btw. 6+7th) was certainly not the best Thai food in Midtown, it had one thing going for it- it was a true Midtown Lunch. Counter for ordering, tables and chairs for sitting, or you could take it to go. No waiters, no tipping, quick, cheap and easy. Now that it’s been shuttered for almost 6 months, and nobody is stepping in to fill the void, lunch’ers have been forced to turn to sit down Thai restaurants for their fix.
This week, NYC Food Guy (aka Lawrence, aka “Superman”) has a Drunken Noodles showdown, with the Out of Bounds: Pam Real Thai Encore (47th btw. 9+10th) losing to Topaz on 56th btw. 6+7th, while Brownie from Blondie & Brownie re-discovers her love of Pongsri Thai (48th btw. B’way+8th), the sit down Theater District favorite, right next to Aoki, and Saigon 48.
Anybody have any other suggestions? Post them in the comments below, or email me at email@example.com
