PROFILE: Midtown Lunch’er “David”
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 we’re proud to welcome the youngest profiled luncher ever: David Pines, author of the book Pines Picks: A Kid’s Guide to the Best Things to Eat and Drink in New York City. He’s 12, so let’s see if we can be on our best behavior today in the comments. (I know it’s tough for all of you.)
Occupation: Student and Author of Pines Picks: A Kid’s Guide to the Best
Things to Eat and Drink in New York City
Favorite Kind of Food: Pizza, Buffalo Wings and Nachos
Least Favorite Kind of Food: Raisins
Favorite Place(s) to Eat Lunch in Midtown: Atomic Wings (Hot Buffalo Wings), Daisy May’s (Ribs/Sweet and Sticky), Popeyes (Fried Chicken), The Melt Shop (Grilled Cheese), Burger Joint (Burgers), Azuri Cafe (Falafel), Lucky’s Famous Burgers (Onion Rings), Two Boots (Pizza/Bayou Beast), Ranch1 (Grilled Chicken Sandwich), Wafels and Dinges (Best waffles ever!), Ray Bari (pizza).
Place you discovered thanks to Midtown Lunch? Daisy May’s BBQ Cart (50th between 6th and 7th). It’s great because it is so much easier to get to than having to go all the way to 11th Avenue!
If you could work anywhere (just because of the lunch) where would it be and why? To me, there is no better place to eat than in New York City.
Anything you’d like to ask the Midtown Lunch readers? What do you think the best pizza is in midtown? My favorite for a regular New York slice is Ray Bari on Third Ave. between 55th and 56th Streets.
