Saddest Midtown Closing: Readers’ Poll 2013

It’s time for the 2013 Midtown Lunch Readers’ Poll. Your nominations are in, and between now and the end of the year we’ll be asking all of you to vote for the best Midtown Lunches in a whole range of categories. You can only vote once per category (so choose wisely), and official results will be posted after the new year.

Our Readers’ Poll is just about over, but before we welcome in 2014 we have to bid a fond farewell to those that we lost in 2013. It wasn’t a good year for dumplings. Rickshaw finally packed it in after 5+ years in business, and newcomer Spring only lasted about 6 months.  Qdoba closed all of their NYC locations, and we lost a classic burger, corned beef, and onion ring joint in the 3rd Ave. Blarney Stone. But saddest closing of all? That’s for you to decide.

Here are the nominees…

  • Blarney Stone (on 3rd Ave btw. 44+45th)
  • Crisp (on 3rd Ave. btw 43+44th)
  • Oriental Noodle Shop
  • Qdoba
  • Rickshaw Dumpling
  • Satya Eastern Kitchen
  • Spring Dumpling

Vote for your favorite, after the jump…
