Phil’s Steaks’ Lil Jawn Hits Streets: Phil's Steaks' second truck, Lil Jawn, hit streets earlier this week without its wrapping, but today the truck makes its debut all dolled up.

According to their twitter account they'll be on 52nd & 6th but you can check the ML twitter tracker before heading out!

Groupon Makes Schnitzel Express ML-able: If you love Schnitzel Express but don't love the fact that the cheapest individual schnitzel is above the Midtown Lunch $10 global limit, it's Groupon to the rescue. They're running a deal to get $20 worth of Schnitzel Express chow for $10 today. Granted, you have to use it all in one visit, but that's enough for a full lunch and then some. It's not a terrible deal, and in fact it's actually pretty good - at least now it's good at their asking price. (My advice: get the Greek, the fresh garlic is aMAYzing)

This Little Piggy Went To Certe For Their April Sandwich: New month, new Certe sammie. The "This Little Piggy" sounds like a doozy -- it includes Mount Mansfield maple glazed pork belly, Millport Dairy Farms cheddar crusted rosemary waffle and peppercress (which is sort of like water cress in flavor). Woah. Early adopters, tell us how it is in the comments!
