Luke’s Lobster Returns: Lobster lovers might have noticed that Luke's Lobster (aka Nauti) has been off the streets for some time now. Well, they've sorted out their permitting issues and the truck will be back on the road today at lunch and the plan is to park at 47th and Madison. Bring your cash, they won't be able to do cards until later in the week. And as always, check before you head out either on the Twitter Tracker or @NautiMobile.

As we've come to expect, there will be a prize wheel with opportunities to win free pies, coffee and dessert, and they'll be handing out free samples near the store.

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!

Zach Calls BS on Chipotle’s Quesarito: Have you heard about the quesarito, Chipotle's off the menu quesadilla wrapped burrito? Zach tried it out in L.A. (naturally) and goes all ballistic over how it's not technically a burrito wrapped in a quesadilla. Enjoy! [Midtown Lunch: Los Angeles]
