PROFILE: Midtown Lunch’er “Rich”
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 Rich, a 26 year old radio guy who wishes he was in L.A. (gee, that sounds familiar!) To be completely honest, as a longtime radio vet who quit his job to do this craziness full time, I have to say I’m kind of shocked somebody under 30 even knows what “radio” is!
Where in Midtown do you Work?: 46th and 6th
Favorite Kind of Food: I have an unhealthy obsession with Korean Fried Chicken.
Least Favorite Kind of Food: Spent too much time on this question. I don’t think I have one.
Favorite Place(s) to Eat Lunch in Midtown: Liege with spekaloos and bananas at Wafels and Dinges, Pork Sandwich with spicey mayo and that garlic/ginger relish at Schnitzel n’ Things, Chicken and Lamb over rice at both Kwik Meal (on 45th and 6th) and Famous Halal Guys (on 53rd and 6th), Cuban Sandwich at Margon (on 46th btw. 6+7th), Falafel w/ Hummus at Kosher Deluxe (on 46th btw. 5+6th), Taiwanese Chicken at the Cravings Truck, Fried Whiting at Kim’s Aunt Kitchen (on 46th and 6th), Shack Burger at Shake Shack (on 8th and 44th), both the hot and soy garlic drumsticks at Bonchon….OK, I need to stop typing. I’m getting hungry.
“Go-To” Lunch Place You and Your Coworkers Eat at Too Often? Don’t have one particular “go-to” spot, but let’s just say I have enlightened many a co-worker to the virtues of the mobile food vendor industry.
Place(s) you discovered thanks to Midtown Lunch? Most of the places listed above. ML is like my bible, if instead of religion, the bible spread the gospel of LDL cholesterol.
If you could work anywhere (just because of the lunch) where would it be and why? LA for food trucks, East Village for most things cheap, quick, and delicious, anywhere in close proximity to a Chick-fil-a.
Anything you’d like to add? Mac n’ Cheese truck in midtown. Would it work and if so, what do we have to do to get one?
As always, if you want to be next week’s Profiled: Midtown Lunch’er (or know somebody you’d like to nominate), email firstname.lastname@example.org.
