Breaking: Volstead Postpones Free Lunch because of Water Shutdown
Just got this from the Volstead (on 54th btw. Park+Lex), the restaurant which has been giving away free lunches to Midtown Lunch readers every Tuesday this month:
Wanted to give you a heads up that we have to postpone today’s free lunch for two weeks. The water department has shut down the water for the entire block and a few blocks of Lexington! Since we can’t get a straight answer as to when it will be turned back on, and we’re completely booked for next week we will honor all of today’s reservations in two weeks, Tuesday June 3rd. We’re trying to contact as many people as humanly possible that have reservations today.
This probably has something to do with yesterdays water main break on 57th btw. 5+6th, although strangely enough, it’s business as usual at most of the restaurants in the vicinity- including the Cosi (on 56th btw. Mad+Park), La Strada (on 56th btw. Lex+Park), Fika Espresso Bar (58th btw. 5+6th), Tina’s Restaurant (56th btw. 5+6th) & the Burger Joint (56th btw. 6+7th).
