PROFILE: Our Newest Contributor “Dan”
Every Tuesday we turn over the site to a different Midtown Lunch’er for his or her recommendations for the best lunch in Midtown. You may have noticed that we have brought a new contributor named Dan into the fold to help shore up our Midtown East coverage. A few weeks ago he told us about the frittate from Pizza Rustica, and if you were excited about the Girl Scout Cookie truck on Friday, that was all him as well. And tomorrow he’s got the scoop on a new entry in the Midtown Lunch Sandwich Challenge. (Get excited.) Let’s make him feel welcome…
Occupation: Communications consultant for a human rights organization
Where in Midtown do you work? Midtown East, a few blocks from the UN.
Favorite Kind of Food: Fried clams, all the way
Least Favorite Kind of Food: Anything with a lot of olives. A few is OK, but I really don’t like olives.
Favorite Place(s) to Eat Lunch in Midtown: Previti (on 41st btw. Lex+Park) for the focaccia lasagna slice, chicken thigh with brown rice at Glaze Teriyaki (on Lex btw. 54+55th), and almost everything at Num Pang (on 41st btw. Lex+3rd).
Place you discovered thanks to Midtown Lunch?: Previti Pizza. Before I found out about it a coworker recommended the 99 cent slice place across the street from my office. Not cool.
If you could work any in the world, purely for lunch purposes, where would it be? Somewhere on the California coast, for cioppino and fish tacos.
Anything you’d like to ask the midtown lunch readers? Any reputable places in Midtown East serving fried clams?
