PROFILE: Midtown Lunch’er “Tiffany”

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 Tiffany, a Tax Accountant who loves bread but hates mediocre food.

Name: Tiffany

Age: 25

Occupation: Tax accountant

Where in Midtown do you Work?: Madison & 42nd

Favorite Kind of Food: At the risk of getting tarred and feathered here on ML, I confess that my tastes veer towards the vegetarian side with some seafood. But, in any case, it’s dangerous when I’m near… 1. food I grew up with (Taiwanese and Mexican) – shaved ice & fried tofu! guac! 2. really good, fresh bread of any kind 3. unusual (but delicious sounding) flavor combos – like an incredible miso almond cookie I had recently

Least Favorite Kind of Food: Mediocre food makes me sad.

Favorite Place(s) to Eat Lunch in Midtown: Soup from Devon & Blakely, pizza from Previti (on 41st btw. Lex+Park), falafel from Naya Express (on 3rd btw. 43+44th), halloumi sandwich from Macchiato Espresso Bar (on 44th btw. Lex+3rd)

“Go-To” Lunch Place You and Your Coworkers Eat at Too Often? Pret a Manger, Devon & Blakely – what can I say, we’re lazy

Place(s) you discovered thanks to Midtown Lunch? Oh, damn…I’ve been following ML so long that it’s kind of hard to remember. Definitely Naya Express and Previti Pizza. Oh! And the Pakistani Tea House downtown for when I had jury duty. The triple veggie combo with naan was freakin’ awesome.

If you could work anywhere (just because of the lunch) where would it be and why? Any marketplace with a huge variety of fresh food. Shaded seating and a view wouldn’t hurt either. Off the top of my head, I could go for working near street food carts in Taiwan (noodles, buns, tofu on a stick!) or the Ferry Market Building in San Fran (cheese, sourdough bread, fresh oysters, affogato, Mexican food!).

Is there anything you’d like to ask the Midtown Lunch readers? Any other picky veggie eaters out there? I can’t believe I’ve been out here so long and still haven’t met anyone with eating habits similar to mine.
