PROFILE: Midtown Lunch’er “Anthony”

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 Anthony, an IT man who wouldn’t want to work anywhere else.

Name: Anthony

Age: 23

Occupation: IT Manager

Where in Midtown do you Work?: 40th between 5th and 6th

Favorite Kind of Food: Indian / Spanish. Anything spicy.

Least Favorite Kind of Food: Chipotle

Favorite Place(s) to Eat Lunch in Midtown: Chicken and lamb over basmati rice with extra white and hot from Adham’s (on 40th & 7th), Margon on 46th btw. 5+6th (Cubans are amazing) also all of their daily hot dishes are great, and Abitino’s (on 40th and 7th) has a good spinach slice

“Go-To” Lunch Place You and Your Coworkers Eat at Too Often? Sushi Deli Box on 39th between 5th and 6th. This place has great prices and amazing sandwiches. The sushi is always fresh and their udon soups are good.

Place(s) you discovered thanks to Midtown Lunch? Me and a few co-workers prowl this website everyday looking for new places to eat. Every place we try from is amazing.

If you could work anywhere (just because of the lunch) where would it be and why? There is nowhere better than midtown for lunch. Food is cheap and good.

Is there anything you’d like to ask the Midtown Lunch readers? Nothing to ask but I do have some information. After 8PM on 28th and Madison there is a yellow truck that serves chicken and rice. This is the best chicken and rice place I have ever had.

Oh yeah? Good to know. Might have to check that out. As always, if you would like to be next week’s Profiled: Midtown Lunch’er (or know somebody you’d like to nominate), email me at
