Times Pub Gets a Visit From the Repo Man
If I had to give out a “Strangest Midtown Lunch Place” Award, it would have to go to the Times Pub on 40th btw. 7+8th. And now it’s closed. From former Profiled Lunch’er and current New York Times writer Jennifer 8 Lee via Twitter:
“times pub (formerly korean buffet deli) on 40th has been reposessed by landlord. it was always empty.”
Too bad it didn’t stay a Korean buffet deli! Its current incarnation was a sports bar/Irish Pub looking place on the outside, with a completely Asian menu (teriyaki, Udon, sushi, ramen, etc.) I always kind of wanted to try it… now it looks like I won’t get the chance. Oh well.
