“Go-To” Lunch Place You and Your Coworkers Eat at Too Often? 696 Deli
Place(s) you discovered thanks to Midtown Lunch? I went to Blarney Stone once before I saw it on Midtown Lunch. I saw the review and got the chicken so I was happy I went again! I love it!
If you could work anywhere (just because of the lunch) where would it be and why? Any city, well preferably New York, Philly or even Boston. I fell in love with Midtown East while I interned and even started my own blog: Small Chick Big Deals that has reviews of those places and more! I love all of the variety in the city!
Anything you’d like to ask the Midtown Lunch readers? Which food trucks are the best and where are they located in NYC!
