PROFILE: Midtown Lunch’er “Mark”
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 Mark, a cheeseburger lover looking for fish tacos.
Occupation: Media Director
Where in Midtown do you work? Channel V Media, 39th and 6th
Favorite Kind of Food: When forced, I will say the cheeseburger is my favorite food, but I’m currently having a steamy affair with fish tacos.
Least Favorite Kind of Food: Egg salad. The look, taste, consistency … everything about egg salad grosses me out.
Favorite Place(s) to Eat Lunch in Midtown: The Burger Joint at Le Parker Meridien, lamb on pita from Kwik Meal, creamy spinach slice from Little Italy Pizza (request a side of marinara sauce for dipping), Moo Shu pork from Szechuan Gourmet on 39th St.
“Go-To” Lunch Place You and Your Coworkers Eat at Too Often? Shamas Deli aka “Best Sandwiches” on 38th is our go-to. The guys who work there are incredibly nice, everything is fresh, and it’s very convenient in terms of grab-and-go. And nothing says “lunch” like a good sandwich and a bag of chips.
Places you have discovered thanks to Midtown Lunch? Someone recommended Margon a while back, which has become a staple for me.
If you could work anywhere (just because of the lunch) where would it be and why? Exumas — an island in the Bahamas. There’s this unassuming shack down there that serves these delicious conch burgers. Add some hot sauce, and you’re in heaven. The locals are friendly as could be, and the surroundings don’t hurt either.
