PROFILE: Midtown Lunch’er “Pat”
Every Tuesday I turn over the site to a different Midtown Lunch’er for his or her recommendations for the best lunch in Midtown. This week it’s Pat, an intern who just moved to NYC a month ago to work in the north eastern corner of Midtown. Let’s try and help him find some good eats (without rubbing it in too much about the Sox hat.)
Occupation: Marketing Intern
Where in Midtown do you Work?: Permal Asset Management at 54th and 3rd
Favorite Kind of Food: Sushi
Least Favorite Kind of Food: Indian
Favorite Place(s) to Eat Lunch in Midtown: Overall, there’s not much in the area, but I recently found two great go to spots. Sushi Express at the corner of 55th and 2nd. Despite the awful name, the sushi is actually pretty good, and fairly priced (8 bucks for 2 rolls, 12 bucks for 3). Service is great, it’s never crowded. I don’t know too much about sushi but me and my buddy thought it was really good and we go there often. The second is Lenny’s at 2nd and 54th. Although its a chain, the food here is amazing. Ask for the Jimmy T. Two chicken cutlets with melted mozzarella covered in sweet peppers and onions with honey mustard. Sounds like a weird combination but its awesome.
“Go-To” Lunch Place You and Your Coworkers Eat at Too Often? We go to Pax all the time because it’s right outside our door. Great sandwiches for a chain restuarant.
If you could work anywhere (just because of the lunch) where would it be and why? Not to be boring, but New York City! Moved here a month ago and couldn’t be happier with the food. In one month I’ve already had the best pizza, sushi, and sandwich I’ve ever tasted.
Is there anything you’d like to ask the Midtown Lunch readers? Does anyone know of any other good hidden spots southeast of central park?
Got a recommendation for Pat? Put it in the comments. And as always if anybody would like to be next week’s Profiled: Midtown Lunch’er (or know somebody you’d like to nominate), email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
