Sad news from 45th Street btw. 2+3rd Ave… Midtown’s only place for Filipino food, Bayan Cafe, closed over the weekend. It was no Iwahan or Renee’s, but we were big fans. In other words… this ain’t Jackson Heights! So unless you planned on hoping on the 7 train and taking a 2 hour lunch, Bayan Cafe was the best you were going to do for some adobo or lumpia.
Just down 45th Street to the west, Lunch’er “Michael” sends word of a far less teary eyed shuttering.
I don’t know if you’ve heard yet, but the Kolache Mama on 45th near Grand Central is now closed, and completely emptied out. Totally unsurprising too, that place just never really worked.
*Sigh* Weird Czechoslovakian pastries, sent here by way of Texas… you were too good for this world.
