PROFILE: Midtown Lunch’er “Lawrence”

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 Lawrence, a software engineer who hates vegetarians and wishes sushi was cheaper.

Name: Lawrence

Age: 26

Occupation: Technical analyst / software engineer for JPMorgan

Where in Midtown do you Work?: 46th & Madison

Favorite Kind of Food: Sushi (but it’s too expensive)!

Least Favorite Kind of Food: Vegetarian

Favorite Place(s) to Eat Lunch in Midtown: Oxtail noodle soup at Oriental Noodle Shop (on 45th btw. Lex+3rd), Chicken at Bian Dang truck, Anything with lamb at Bi Lokma (on 45th btw. 2+3rd), Ramen at Hide Chan (on 52nd btw. 2+3rd)

“Go-To” Lunch Place You and Your Coworkers Eat at Too Often? Hing Won. It’s so cheap!

Place(s) you discovered thanks to Midtown Lunch? All of the food trucks

If you could work anywhere (just because of the lunch) where would it be and why? Paris, because it’s ok to drink wine during lunch.

Anything you’d like to ask the Midtown Lunch readers? Where is there good sushi for cheap?

It’s been awhile since we’ve been, but Aoki (on 48th btw. 7+8th) has always been the ML standby for sushi value. 3 rolls plus soup for $11. How can that be beat? Got a recommendation for Lawrence? Put it in the comments. And, as always, if you want to be next week’s Profiled: Midtown Lunch’er (or know somebody you’d like to nominate) email
