Flatiron News: Post-Sandy Food and Cell Charging Edition
In lieu of our regular review, we thought a partial list of open restaurants in Flatiron might be helpful.
Without power at my apartment and office, I relocated to the north. For those of you braver than I and still toughing it out in Flatiron, we thought you might appreciate a list of where to eat on Friday. Fingers crossed we get power back over the weekend.
Eater has been tracking restaurants that are open all around town since Sunday afternoon, and it put a smile on my face to see restaurants hosting sidewalk grill-outs to use up food before it spoiled. Check here for city-wide updates.
Arguably more important than food is the need to charge your cell phone. Mad Park News posted a list of places near the park to charge up as of October 31. They also posted the above photo of mass cell-charging at 7-Eleven on 5th Ave. I salute 7-Eleven for providing a place to charge phones.
If you are reading this, you might have enough battery to try your luck on seamless.com. But remember to follow Seamless’ Sandy Ordering Protocol, which requires calling the restaurant to double check that they are open and able to deliver.
Melt has been open with limited hours on Wednesday and Thursday with intermittent power and food outages. They are hoping to be open Friday but couldn’t confirm at press time. They hope to answer phones, so call 212.447.MELT (6358) to confirm.
55 West 26th street (between 6th Ave and Broadway), (212) 447-MELT (6358)
Hill Country will be open starting at noon, and they confirmed they will have a full menu on Friday.
30 West 26th Street (between 6th Avenue and Broadway), (212) 255-4544
Ace Hotel and NoMad Hotel
It also seems that just up Broadway, The Ace Hotel has opened The Breslin, John Dory Oyster Bar, No. 7 Sub, and Stumptown, in addition, to outlets for cell phone charging! And if you are interested in splurging over the ML budget to release some of your stress, NoMad is also open and serving.
Ace Hotel, 20 West 29th Street at Broadway, (212) 679-2222
NoMad Hotel, 1170 Broadway at West 28th Street, (212) 796-1500
