Bits and Pieces: Chapati Roll Cart #2; Macaron; Piece of Chicken

Biriyani Cart on 46th & 6th, Midtown NYC

The guys who run the Biriyani/Chapati Roll cart on 46th & 6th have filled out the necessary paperwork for their second cart, and should be up and running the first or second week of July. The new cart (which is ready to go) will park at their current spot, and they will send this cart over to either Park Ave. & 46th or down to 43rd & 6th. They’re in the process of “negotiating” with the other vendors in the area now…


Macaron the awesome French bakery/sandwich/salad place on 36th btw. B’way+7th in the Garment District has new salads. Not exactly sure which salads are new, and which ones aren’t- but I’m sure if you are into that stuff, you won’t mind heading over there and seeing it for yourself. I was more interested in the Doughnut Plant doughnuts they are now serving… doughnut, macaron. Marcaron, donut. I’ll take both please.

The closed, but soon to re-open Indian buffet, and piece of chicken after the jump…


West Tandoori Club, an Indian buffet on 37th St. btw. 7+8th closed down recently to do a complete renovation. I think they were the only under $10 all-you-can-eat Indian buffet left within the Midtown Lunch boundaries, but we’ll see if the buffet stays at that price when they re-open. The kitchen is still open for takeout or delivery (212-560-9414), but the actual restaurant won’t be open until at least next week. I’ll keep you up to date…


The just outside Midtown Lunch boundaries, Piece of Chicken (aka the only place to serve fried chicken and waffles in Midtown) on 45th btw. 8+9th has expanded their mostly $1 and $2 menu. They now carry daily specials which include smothered pork chops and ham hocks, plus new menu items like smothered chicken, and chicken in honey sauce.
