NY Post Exposes Me for the Fat Bastard I Am
This morning’s NY Post has an article listing all the daily food items we buy that have increased in priced since the beginning of the year. I’ve complained so much about the rising cost of Midtown lunches, they asked me to comment on it for the piece, and this is the quote that got printed:
I suppose there is no denying that quote. (It sounds like something that would come out of my mouth.)
Coincidentally enough, after talking to them, I discovered another buffet has raised their prices. Find out which one after the jump…
The International Food House Buffet on 35th btw. 7+8th recently upped their all you can eat buffet price from $8.95 to $9.95. Thankfully, at under $10 it’s still technically a Midtown Lunch, and with the steep increase in the price of rice, flour and just about everything else, it’s tough to be mad. Paying $9 for their extensive, and delicious Latin buffet was borderline criminal.
For the first few months of the year, I tried posting every time the price of a Midtown Lunch was raised, but it just got to be too much. Almost everything is more expensive than when I originally started the site almost 2 years ago. So I’ve decided to start a price hike list, which will appear on the left hand table of contents. On it, you can see a list of all the places, that I know of, whose prices have gone up since I originally wrote about them here on Midtown Lunch. I know it’s not comprehensive, but it includes every place that I’ve gotten an email, or reader comment about. Feel free to add more in the comments or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll add them to the official list.
