I don’t know how I missed this one… but if you’d like to enjoy your lunch in front of some “art”, the atrium inside 590 Madison (enter on 56th St. btw. 5th+Madison) is housing Murakami’s “Oval Buddha”, a sculpture that was too large to fit in the Murakami show at the Brooklyn Museum.  The buddha will be there until September 7th (and there are plenty of tables for lunch’ing.)

Here are some of the reasonably close Midtown Lunch’es in the area:

  • I personally like the other side. It’s like the chain bull dog things from Mario games. My spy in the building has got its eye on the opening of obika, the cheese bar in the left hand corner.

  • GREAT call on the chain bull dog thingie Blondie…haha, it totally resembles it…

    pretty cool statue overall though.
