所以这就是交易……如果你在办公室工作,那么你知道在吃午饭的时候,懒惰的人是如何的。曼哈顿中城的情况也不例外。在任何一个方向上的一个街区就像大多数人所要去的一样,通常这只是一个糟糕的定价过高的沙拉或三明治。我不是那些人之一。对我来说,午餐时间是神圣的 – 我不会把它浪费在一些普通的价格过高的“熟食店”(除非它是所有你可以吃自助餐)。这个网站将有希望成为一个地方找到宝石在无尽的海洋中,无论你在哪里工作。

Midtown Lunch成立于2006年,专门用于覆盖曼哈顿中城的食物。但从2010年1月开始,我们扩大了范围,现在在纽约市中心,费城和洛杉矶寻找“中城午餐”。我们所有的人都是民族食品的大粉丝(我提到了我对中国自助餐的喜爱吗?),而不是那种无聊的铁链或沙拉的粉丝 – 所以如果你正在寻找一个新的沙拉的地方,给你7个选项,而不是6,你可能在这里找不到(除非是沙拉吧/中式自助餐)。我们喜欢街头小吃,以及在大多数同事认为“脏”的地方(我正在看你的泰达牛排)的地方吃东西的挑战,所以打我们最好的一击。总而言之,我们希望中城午餐将成为所有在城市午餐中寻找冒险的人的有用资源。

关于+/-

我坚信,让食物“好”的东西总是一个品味的问题。另外一个人觉得很棒(我是在一辆桶装车),另一个人可能会觉得很恶心(我和大多数人一起工作)。你喜欢和不喜欢的东西大多与个人品味,期望,价格等有关,所以我总是觉得直接的评论是放纵的。如果一个地方是开放的,那么有人必须喜欢它,所以我们写的每个地方都得到+/-。理论上(+)是真正喜欢这个地方的人会说的。( – )是一个不喜欢这个地方的人会说的。虽然我们是否喜欢某个地方通常是显而易见的,但是我知道信息是相当主观的…因此+/-。这就是说,每个人都有自己的最爱和意见,

  • Congratulations on the NYTimes mention. You NYC restaurant bloggers are great. I wrote about the the article today at http://culinary-colorado.blogspot.com/.

  • Great website and detail regarding the bulgogi cart and others. I see that you are partial to Asian food, and not scared by apparently dirty places, then perhaps you may be interested in a fantastic place at 273 W.38th Street. (212)-575-6978 (sorry, no name on the menu). 3 different (or the same) menu selections plus white rice or fried rice PLUS a cup of the house soup (self serve) for $3.75 including tax from 11am to 3pm. This is perhaps the most authentic Chinese food in the area (there is another one directly across the street, but a face to face encounter with Kenny the Cockeroach while waiting on line turned me away back to the other place). You have your choice of fried pork chops, chicken thigh and leg, Shrimp with Egg and Onions, chinese beef brisket stew, bean thread (rice vermicelli), braised spareribs with blackbean sauce, tofu & vegetables, braised veal with peppers, chicken with garlic sauce, peking pork chop, and for the adventurous, deep fried frog’s legs, braised Ox, tail, tripe with turnip and pig’s knuckles with bean thread and so much more (20 to 25 selections). To me, the quality of the food is just like Chinatown, and so is the price. I see your budget is $10 (mine was under $5 (limited to Daily Specials at Subway’s for $3.99), you can order two platters for $7.50 and still have change for one of the truly authentic Chinese pastries ($0.60 to $0.75 each) plus an Iced Coffee for $1.50.

    Also, not included for the $3.75 is the Chinese BBQ, just like Chinatown, hanging in the window, duck, Roast Pork, Spare Ribs, Soy Sauce Chicken and Salt Baked Chicken. If you want these with you selection, there is an upcharge (I think it’s $0.50 to $1), still a bargain. The decor is non existent (usually tables are occupied by men only), the service is very quick and abrupt (i.e. rude), (you just have to know how to point to what you want if you don’t speak the language).

    Ordering off of the menu is also a bargain, there is nothing over $4.50 listed. Serving a predominantly Chinese garment worker lunch crowd (W.38th & 8th Avenue) It is probably the best bargain around; the only downside is that I have to walk 11 blocks and 2 Avenues (no delivery) to get there (not good during extremely cold or hot days). Btw, breakfast is a steal also, coffee and a pastry selection or Congee (rice porridge) for under $2. Let me know what you think, I’d love to hear your feedback.

  • sorry, zach. it was free for me bc my buddy bob paid for it. you have
    to have some kind of id swipe card. and it’s 40 cents an OUNCE. i was
    baiting kevin or bob to comment bc they are the research dept. at
    esquire, so they fact check everything in the magazine and i bug them
    all the time to read my blog. looks like one of them actually did.

    speaking of blogs, yours rocks. i read it back when you were trying to
    find the korean food cart. can’t wait to try those bulgoki sandwiches,
    even if they are lame.

    if you ever have to do an errand in the financial district before 3pm,
    you gotta try shirley’s cart on State St. . she has terrific carribean
    food with the most AMAZING ginger beer i’ve ever had that’s dirt cheap
    at 1.50. On Fridays she serves fish and it’s really good homestyle
    cooking. i worked a gig down there in 2005 and ate there as much as i
    could. http://i_eat_ny.blogspot.com/2005/11/never-fear-ginger-beer.html

    anyway, thanks for commenting. and i look forward to your take on the
    bulgoki sandwiches.

  • Thanks so much for this totally invaluable source–what a find. Thanks for doing the footwork–these heels don’t allow for much midtown meandering….

  • Today’s AMnewyork paper has a $2 COSI coupon on page 14. They run these coupons occasionally, and it is $2 off any sandwich, salad, or pizza.

  • I think we work in the same building because I was just reading your postings about Chipotle and the Korean food cart. I haven’t seen those $1 bulgogi sandwiches yet but next time I do, I am definitely gonna give them a try. Thanks for this site! I’m one of those people who get stuck in a rut in what I eat and have no idea where to go for something new, or where to go to get the foods I love to eat. Even better, you’ve given me insight on a bunch of restaurants I’ve seen, walked by but never had the guts to go into. Thanks!!

    For cheap Chinese food that’s not as great as Chinatown but comparable, I go to Hing Won on 48th between 5th & 6th. As for sushi, I like the lunch combos at Kiku on 55th between 5th & 6th. Freshest fish in the area!

    Happy eating! =)

  • Love this site! Great resource for all the good places to eat.. but you’re missing one– Green Symphony, it’s a great place for Vegans/Vegetarians or people that want to eat healthily. Check it out! W. 43rd, Btwn 7th and 8th.. It’s next to the New York Times Building.

  • has anyone turned your suggestions into a google maps mashup so we can see what is close to our offices? that would be totally awesome. Not that your site is hard to navigate… its not! its great! but a map would really be pretty sweet.

  • Hope you go try the Pranzo pizza truck on 55th and park
    if you like pizza you’ll love this,lunch special two slices and a soda $5.00′ the guy on the truck is Pete nice guy tell him the guy that ordered one of eveything on the menu sent ya.

  • I enjoy your blog. It was helpful in terms of finding banh mi in midtown (who knew?) for a posting I did on cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com

    I’m a writer for the NYTimes and I’d like to send you a galley of my
    upcoming book on Chinese food in America called The Fortune Cookie
    Chronicles ( fortunecookiechronicles.com). Especially excited because you are partial to Asian food.

    The galleys just showed up this week on Friday!

    I honestly think you would enjoy at least flipping through it. In it,
    I discover the true origins of fortune cookies (Japan), find General
    Tso’s family in China and try to find the greatest Chinese restaurant
    in the world (outside China).

    There is a lot of NY stuff, not a lot of midtown stuff though.

    I just would like your mailing address?

  • Happy New Year! Next time I get to NY (June) I’ll be sure to check the site for cheap (good) eats.

  • Great site. But, response time is really slow. Can you get hosted on some better servers.

  • I just read 4-5 of your reviews and i have to say that i love how you write! You have great opinions, you are very funny and you love buffets :P
    I bookmarked your website, i love buffets too and this is the perfect source of information!

  • Thanks for this Blog.

    I agree with you that lunch is very sacred & should not be wasted on bad food.

  • Love your blog–I’m something of a foodie as well, and hate to pay good money for bad stuff. I do think, however, that you gave Dishes short shrift. I’ve never tried the soup, the salads they mix for you, or the sandwiches. I go straight for the ‘by the pound’ market table in the middle. I go to the one on 54th and Park, and while the crowds and lines are a nightmare, the food on the market table is remarkably fresh, interesting and tasty–flavors are bright and distinctive, and even if you get a bit of several things, each one still stands out. There’s a lot of variety each day, (generally including a large number of Asian-themed items) they offer different selections each day of the week, and keep introducing new things, so I don’t get bored if I eat there often. It is, however, on the expensive side, so the way to keep it under $10 is not to get too greedy (better for the waistline anyway).

  • Your blog is our inspiration. We’re your newborn brother holding it down in the financial district. We’ve just gotten started, but slow and steady, right?

  • All the way from London, UK. I’m a foodlover myself and read your blog alot. Just want to say I love it and I recently decided to start my own food website called londoneater.com with food reviews in London!
    Do come check it out sometime, keep up the great eating man!

  • How do I sign up? I am a total food critic and I find this site to be very useful.

    Can a link be sent to me??
