PROFILE: Midtown Lunch’er “Victoria”
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 Victoria, an administrative assistant who wishes soul food had more flavor, and is looking to eat more locally sourced foods.
Age: Let’s keep things mysterious…
Occupation: Freelance writer/executive assistant
Where in Midtown do you Work?: Brooklyn/51st and Park
Favorite Kind of Food: This is tough. I can’t limit myself: Thai, Indian, Korean, salads, and macro (I shake it up between heavy ethnic foods and fresh/healthy stuff).
Least Favorite Kind of Food: Soul food – I usually find it pretty bland!
Favorite Place(s) to Eat Lunch in Midtown: Donburi to-go at Katsuhama/Sushi Tei (on 47th btw. Mad+5th), the buffet at Cafe Bistro.
“Go-To” Lunch Place You and Your Coworkers Eat at Too Often? Bistro Cafe and Just Salad, both on 51st (btw. Mad+Park)
Place(s) you discovered thanks to Midtown Lunch? Oms/b (on 45th btw. Lex+3rd) and the midtown location of Men Kui Tei (on 56th btw. 5+6th). Oms/b is okay, but I love Men Kui Tei’s ramen (one of the few ramen places with good veggie options!).
If you could work anywhere (just because of the lunch) where would it be and why? K-Town! So I could eat at Woorijip (on 32nd btw. B’way+5th) all the time.
Anything you’d like to ask the midtown lunch readers? I’ve been trying to eat more locally. Anybody know of midtown spots that feature local items? I can find this in Brooklyn or downtown but don’t see this up here….
