PROFILE: Midtown Lunch’er “Liz”

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 Liz, a dessert obsessed money person who loves eating outside.

Name: Liz

Age: 27

Occupation: “The Financial Services Sector”. It’s incredibly unrewarding for others to understand what I do for a living.

Where in Midtown do you Work?: Bryant Park

Favorite Kind of Food: Dessert; desserts posing as breakfast. I love that what’s ostensibly cake is a reasonable thing to eat at 7:30AM.

Least Favorite Kind of Food: “Salads” whose binding ingredient is mayonnaise. Come on.

Favorite Place(s) to Eat Lunch in Midtown: Anyone who doesn’t respond “Margon‘s Cuban sandwich” (on 46th btw. 6+7th) to this question is a heretic who must be regarded with suspicion. The Cravings Truck, naturally.

“Go-To” Lunch Place You and Your Coworkers Eat at Too Often? Akdeniz. (on 46th btw. 5+6th) There’s no better gateway to an afternoon of hypoglycemic senselessness than those giant pillows of bread.

Place(s) you discovered thanks to Midtown Lunch? Hing Won. I order dinner there about once a week, because it’s delicious, and because they employ world-class city block sprinters that show up four – six minutes after I hang up the phone.

If you could work anywhere (just because of the lunch) where would it be and why? I don’t think the variety and laity of New York City’s food industry can be beat. (Yeah huh.) I don’t find myself in SoHo often enough, but to have Cafe Habana at my fingertips would be cojito-cheese-sopped dream.

Is there anything you’d like to ask the Midtown Lunch readers? I can’t wait for Grace Plaza to reopen. What will you be bringing there to picnic?

As always, if you want to be next week’s Profiled: Midtown Lunch’er (or know somebody you’d like to nominate), email
