PROFILED: Midtown Lunch’er “Patrick”
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 Patrick, a Maxim editor who’s not gay but has a man crush on Uncle Gussy.
Occupation: Editor at Maxim
Where in Midtown do you Work?: Midtown East
Favorite Kind of Food: Italian and Chinese
Least Favorite Kind of Food: Overcooked meat. It’s like, what’s the point?
Favorite Place(s) to Eat Lunch in Midtown: Fried Oyster Po’ Boy from Grand Central Oyster Bar, Double Cooked Sliced Pork Belly from Szechuan Gourmet (on 39th btw. 5+6th), Cuban sandwich from Margon (on 46th btw. 6+7th).
“Go-To” Lunch Place You and Your Coworkers Eat at Too Often? Uncle Gussy’s cart (on 51st and Park). The food is consistently good and–even though I’m straight–I have a total man-crush on the bald guy there.
Place(s) you discovered thanks to Midtown Lunch? The Trini Paki Boys Cart (on 43rd and 6th). I love doubles!
If you could work anywhere (just because of the lunch) where would it be and why? I’ve never been, but maybe Saigon? All the pho and bánh mì I could eat, plus I’ve always wanted to drink from a bag.
Anything you’d like to ask the Midtown Lunch readers? Is there anywhere in this city with decent Buffalo wings?
