Your First Look at the Now Open Boi Noodles
When looking for Vietnamese food in Midtown, you kinda have to take what you can get. For those of you hankering for authentic and cheap… the subway to Chinatown is your best bet (and even that is questionable.) If you’ve got to stay in Midtown West, you’re stuck with Chicken House (on 36th btw. 7+8th) and now Boi Noodles- which opened today on 40th btw 7+8th Ave. If you’ve been to Boi Sandwich or Boi To Go (on the east side), you should be prepared for the sticker shock (banh mi sandwiches are $6.89, noodle soups are $7.35, and lunch boxes are in the $7 to $8 dollar range.)
Check out a few pictures of the interior after the jump.
The seating area is upstairs and features picnic style benches. There’s plenty of seating and it wasn’t that crowded when we were there between Noon and 1pm. (Although it sounds like things started to pick up once the New York Times employees started taking their lunch breaks…) We’ll have to wait and see how the lunching crowd takes to this new option… check out the menu here, and early adopters should report back in the comments.
