Bread & Honey Brings Mongolian BBQ and More to Midtown West
Thanks to Lunch’er Mangostrawberry for giving us the heads up about Bread & Honey, a new Deli/Supermarket/Buffet/Sandwich/Udon noodle place on 8th Ave between 55th & 56th. Normally this sort of venue wouldn’t be worthy of investigation, but when we hear the words Mongolian BBQ station (possibly the only one of its kind in this area) all bets are off. I did a quick cruise through the store to inspect.
Aesthetically speaking, it’s not much of a looker. In fact it’s more like the bastard child of a freaky 3-way between a LES bodega, Cafe Duke, and an industrial warehouse. It’s also within spitting distance of a Gristedes, Food Emporium, and the Columbus Circle Whole Foods, so I’m not optimistic about the longevity of this place.
The prices of their sandwiches are certainly ML worthy.
There’s an extensive steam table of your standard buffet items, priced at $7.99/lb, featuring an eclectic line-up of American-Chinese, Korean, Japanese, a salad bar, and American comfort foods.
The Mongolian BBQ station is at the back of the store, complete with instructions to tell you how it’s done. I’d already had lunch prior to this visit, so I didn’t try any of the food. However, early adopters should let us know what they think in the comments.
