PROFILE: Midtown Lunch’er “Jared”

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 get to see how the 1% live! Meet Jared, a lawyer who likes Num Pang but whose go-to lunches are a bit pricier than our average find.

Name: Jared

Age: 26

Occupation: Attorney

Where in Midtown do you work? 1350 Broadway, between 35th and 36th street

Favorite Kind of Food: Chinese

Least Favorite Kind of Food: Indian

Favorite Place(s) to Eat Lunch in Midtown: Skirt Steak Sandwich from Num Pang (on 41st btw. Lex+3rd) or Chicken Satays at Philippe (on 60th btw. Mad+Park)

“Go-To” Lunch Place You and Your Coworkers Eat at Too Often? Ai Fiori (on 5th btw. 36+37th) or Keens Steakhouse (on 36th btw. 5+6th)

Places you have discovered thanks to Midtown Lunch? Lazarra’s Pizza

If you could work anywhere (just because of the lunch) where would it be and why? Anybody that says anywhere except NYC is crazy. Specifically, near Madison Square Park, because for one month every year I’d be able to go to Madison Square Eats every day.

Anything you’d like to ask the midtown lunch readers? What are the best places to have lunch delivered in midtown?
