PROFILE: Midtown Lunch’er “Phoebe”
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 Phoebe, a luncher who loves healthy food and hates (gulp) halal.
Where in Midtown do you Work?: 53rd & Broadway
Favorite Kind of Food: Healthy!
Least Favorite Kind of Food: Halal
Favorite Place(s) to Eat Lunch in Midtown: Mooncake Foods’ Miso Salmon with a salad and brown rice. Chop’t's Palm Beach Shrimp Salad. Pure Thai Shophouse’s Spicy Basil Chicken and refreshing Spicy Beef Salad. Pio Pio (on 10th Ave. & 44th) for a pollo a la brasa lunch special. Equinox Gym’s City Chow Cafe (on B’way btw. 50+51st) for yogurt-marinated salmon platter. Energy Kitchen’s (on 47th btw. 9+10th) Grilled Chicken Italian Wrap with a steamed spinach side (smothered in Grey Poupon).
“Go-To” Lunch Place You and Your Coworkers Eat at Too Often? Metro Cafe (for their unlimited veggie toppings salad toss).
If you could work anywhere (just because of the lunch) where would it be and why? Malecón Miraflores in Lima, Peru. I’d love to head down to oceanfront each day and have fresh ceviches, anticuchos and Choritos a la Chalaca (amazing mussel “ceviche”). Or have some pollo a la brasa with fresh avocado salad.
Anything you’d like to ask the Midtown Lunch readers? What’s your favorite cheap happy hour in Hells Kitchen/Midtown West?
