PROFILE: Midtown Lunch’er “Sammy”

Every Tuesday we 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 Sammy, a social media grunt who is looking for some breakfast.

Name: Sammy

Age: 29

Occupation: Media and Communications Specialist (Social Media Grunt)

Where in Midtown do you Work?: Bryant Park

Favorite Kind of Food: Changes with my mood. I suppose I could eat like the French daily.

Least Favorite Kind of Food: Steam tables. Midtown hero/grinder/subs with a few exceptions.

Favorite Place(s) to Eat Lunch in Midtown: Lan Sheng (on 39th btw. 5+6th): shrimp w/ tofu (ask for it spicy). Trini Paki Cart (on 43rd and 6th): Lamb over rice with everything. I am thrilled that 2 Bros. opened up right in midtown. Clearly not the best pizza, but better than Little Italy and the like and so very cheap.

“Go-To” Lunch Place You and Your Coworkers Eat at Too Often? Dishes…meh

Place(s) you discovered thanks to Midtown Lunch? Trini Paki Cart. Margon (on 46th btw. 6+7th). Indus Express (on 48th btw. 5+6th). I could go on and on.

If you could work anywhere (just because of the lunch) where would it be and why? Vermont. Cheese. Nuff’ said.

Is there anything you’d like to ask the Midtown Lunch readers? Best breakfast??? Let us know!

Got a breakfast suggestion for Sammy? Put it in the comments. And, as always, if you would like to be next week’s Profiled: Midtown Lunch’er (or know somebody you’d like to nominate), email
