PROFILE: Midtown Lunch’er “Nicholas”

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 Nicholas, a former Midtown Lunch’er with some good recs for those he left behind on the west side.

Name: Nicholas

Age: 23

Occupation: Usher at the Angelika Film Center

Where in Midtown do you Work?: Now downtown, but used to be in Midtown back when I had a “real” film job over on 45th between 9th and 10th

Favorite Kind of Food: Indian Lunch Buffet, Bubble Tea!

Least Favorite Kind of Food: Sushi (sorry, bros)

Favorite Place(s) to Eat Lunch in Midtown: Chicken “Taco” w/Mixed Vegetables from Good N’ Plenty to Go (Crazy good take-out run by two elderly theater-loving gay men and their all Latino crew on 43rd bet. 9th and 10th.) Cream of Tomato w/Chicken+Orzo Soup w/ Small Baby Spinach/Sundried Tomatoes Salad combo from Hale+Hearty Soups. Chicken Bulgur Wheat Platter w/ Tsatziki, Garlic Sauce, Tahini and Hot Sauce from Meze Grill (on 8th Ave. btw. 55+56th). Grilled Chicken Sandwich w/Mixed Greens, Red Pepper Sauce, Fries from Chicken Bar (guilty pleasure on 8th Ave. btw. 45+46th)

“Go-To” Lunch Place You and Your Coworkers Eat at Too Often? Good N’ Plenty to Go! Those dudes know me the second I walk in.

Place(s) you discovered thanks to Midtown Lunch? Taim Mobile! Thanks for the scoop.

If you could work anywhere (just because of the lunch) where would it be and why? New York, duh! You can get EVERYTHING here.

Anything you’d like to ask the Midtown Lunch readers? Do you really like Ma Peche that much? I’m really over David Chang.
