PROFILE: Midtown Lunch’er “Jen”
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 Jen, a grant writer in Bryant Park who wishes she was lunching in Hong Kong.
Occupation: Grant Writer
Where in Midtown do you work? Bryant Park
Favorite Kind of Food: Anything that’s spicy. I love exxxtra hot Thai and Indian curry. Peruvian aji sauce = amazing. I’m always looking for great Buffalo Wings. Piri Piri chicken needs to happen in this city, stat.
Least Favorite Kind of Food: I’m wary of raw seafood and fish dishes, but I’ll usually still eat it if it’s there.
“Go-To” Lunch Place You and Your Coworkers Eat at Too Often? Zeytinz (on 40th btw. 5+6th). Huge sandwiches and a bibimbap bar.
Places you have discovered thanks to Midtown Lunch? I haven’t been working in midtown long, so almost everything I eat is recommended by Midtown Lunch.
If you could work anywhere (just because of the lunch) where would it be and why? Hong Kong. You can find off-the-beaten-path restaurants on any floor of any building, not just by the service elevators.
Anything you’d like to ask the midtown lunch readers? What’s your number one choice of an authentic cuisine you would bring into Midtown that you just can’t find (under $10)?
