PROFILE: Midtown Lunch’er “Lexie”
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 Lexie a PR exec looking for some authentic Mexican food in Midtown.
Occupation: Public relations executive
Where in Midtown do you work? Park Avenue and 55th Street
Favorite Kind of Food: Thai food (Pam Real Thai or Sook in midtown and UWS respectively)
Least Favorite Kind of Food: Anything by hostess
Favorite Place(s) to Eat Lunch in Midtown: It was Menchanko Tei for their amazing menchanko ramen and rice balls–but it recently closed. Love the food truck on the corner of Park and 55th. They have an awesome brown rice, veggie and chicken combo for $7! Also, can’t go wrong with Grand Sichuan on 2nd Avenue and 55th–soup dumplings–oh yea! Also dig Taksim on 2nd Avenue in the low 50s. Amazing kofte sandwiches and great tarama (taramaslata), stuffed grape leaves and borek.
“Go-To” Lunch Place You and Your Coworkers Eat at Too Often? Unfortunately, Pret a Manger or Dishes.
Places you have discovered thanks to Midtown Lunch? El Rey del Sabor empanadas
If you could work anywhere (just because of the lunch) where would it be and why? Rome!!! You can’t eat a bad meal there and they have blissfully leisurely lunches. And negronis.
Anything you’d like to ask the midtown lunch readers? Where can I get amazing, authentic Mexican for cheap in midtown?
