PROFILE: Midtown Lunch'er "Felicia"
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 Felicia, a logistics manager (wha?) who loves pizza but can’t stand chicken. (I think we might be able to get behind that…)
Occupation: Logistics Manager
Where in Midtown do you Work?: Garment Center
Favorite Kind of Food: Can you say cheese please, anything with cheese! I love pizza(I am a Brooklyn girl)
Least Favorite Kind of Food: Chicken, we had a disagreement years ago, so we broke up! Actually I got sick twice and never ate it again!
Favorite Place(s) to Eat Lunch in Midtown: My new obsession are all these great new trucks! My favorite is Mexicue. The short Rib tacos are the best! They usually park near Bryant park once a week. A few weeks back I ventured over to the Schnitzel & Things truck on 46th and let me tell you! I see what the buzz is about! As far as favorite pizza places go nothing will ever beat Brooklyn pizza in my eyes but for midtown here are my picks, it is all about the mood. If you want a thin crust with lots of yummy combo’s for toppings I suggest Lazzara’s (on 38th btw. 6+7th). If you are in the mood for a cheesy salty inexpensive slice the $1.00 pizza at 2 brother’s on 8th avenue is the way to go!
“Go-To” Lunch Place You and Your Coworkers Eat at Too Often? We have two fan favorites here. At least once a week one of us has a Pick-a-Pita (on 8th Ave. btw. 39+40th) moment and the next thing you know we are all craving it and have to run down there for a falafel platter. If we aren’t eating falafel then we are heading to Ginger’s on 7th avenue (btw 37+38th) for some Szechuan dumplings.
Place(s) you discovered thanks to Midtown Lunch? Schnitzel & things I owe all to you guys, I also use the site when I have no idea what I want to eat, I pull it up and get ideas from whatever article is up on the home page.
If you could work anywhere (just because of the lunch) where would it be and why? That would be Italy just so I can have a very long leisurely lunch where I can eat cheese, drink wine and people watch!
Is there anything you’d like to ask the Midtown Lunch readers? I bake cupcakes and I cater them to parties and events, I am just starting out and have become obsessed with trying cupcakes all over the city and comparing them to mine, so I would like to ask everyone, who do they think make’s the best cupcake’s around midtown?
