PROFILE: Midtown Lunch’er “Andrew”
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 Andrew, an intern who’s on the hunt for some Chicago style pizza.
Where in Midtown do you work? Corner of 42nd & 3rd
Favorite Kind of Food: As a tightly budgeted college student, my favorite food has grown to be a quick slice of pizza (preferably with BBQ chicken).
Least Favorite Kind of Food: Gazpacho soup – cold soup is arguably the most outright travesty ever!
Favorite Place(s) to Eat Lunch in Midtown: By far, my favorite place to grab lunch in Midtown is Crisp (on 43rd & 3rd). The Crisp Mexican is incredible, and a side of French Fries make it the perfect combo. Plus, it’s right across the street from where I work. Second place goes to the Tri-Tip Grill in Grand Central. I got the Border Buck with extra Chipotle Sauce the first day I was in NYC (needless to say, I started off on the right foot). Goodburger is another place that rocks – get the Classic Burger with The Works.
“Go-To” Lunch Place You and Your Coworkers Eat at Too Often? Does breakfast count? Our signature “Foodie Fridays” are usually kicked off with a bagel breakfast from Daniel’s Bagel.
Places you have discovered thanks to Midtown Lunch? Believe it or not, I hadn’t heard of Shake Shack before coming to New York. So, naturally, when I saw your recent post about their new “Smoke Shack,” I had to try it. Thank you for helping me see the light!
If you could work anywhere (just because of the lunch) where would it be and why? New Orleans, Louisiana for their shrimp po-boys. I visited there earlier this summer and must have tried nearly 10 different po-boys – all of them phenomenal.
Anything you’d like to ask the midtown lunch readers? I’m from the Midwest, so Chicago-style pizza is something that can’t be beat, in my opinion. Anyone have any New York-style pizza place suggestions that could rival Chicago-style pizza?
