Highlights From Our 5th Birthday Party

Crowd shot

On Saturday we gathered together at City Winery with a couple hundred of our closest friends to celebrate the 5 year anniversary of Midtown Lunch (yes, we too are surprised this thing has been around for 5 years!)   A great time was had by all thanks to the amazing food (provided graciously by Kwik Meal, The Biryani Cart, Cer Te, Ma Peche, Food Gallery 32, El Rey del Sabor, Tri Tip Grill, Wafels & Dinges, Miss Softee & the Rolling Cones, Kelvin Slush, and Momofuku Milk Bar) and the endless drinks courtesy of Brooklyn Brewery and GuS’s soda.

Check out the highlights, after the jump…

Juicy Wings Cart Relocates… Right Next To The Competition

The Biryani Cart empire appears to be expanding its borders beyond 46th and 6th. Their Juicy Wings cart, which hasn’t actually been serving wings since February, is now set up 2 blocks south on the SW corner of 44th & 6th serving traditional favorites like biryani, street meat and kati rolls right next to My Biryani, a cart heavily “inspired” by Biryani Cart.  The  move will surely result in some “friendly” competition, but when I stopped by the much less well-known My Biryani was actually serving more people in its usual spot than the recently relocated offshoot of the original. It will be interesting to see how lines compare as more people realize they can get Biryani Cart food two blocks away, presumably with less waiting.

Lenten Fish Fridays: Biryani Cart’s Boneless Fish Curry

Today is the first Friday during Lent, which for our observing Catholic lunch’ers means no meat. Traditionally Lenten Friday lunches might include fish sticks or a tuna sandwich, which have their own special place in the lunch pantheon, but if you’re looking to expand your fish lunch horizons, we’ve got some suggestions for you in the coming weeks. First up the Boneless Fish Curry from Biryani Cart.

Midtown Kati Krawl Yields Definitive Winner

biryani kati rolls 2

When you’re the food blogger in the family you often get co-opted into the food decider role–the person in charge of picking the food outing that the whole family will enjoy. I love introducing people to new foods, but still it comes with a good bit of pressure. Months ago I introduced my husband’s aunt to kati rolls and she’s been raving about them ever since. With my husband’s mother, brother and sister in town it was clear that kati rolls would be on tap and with so many eager eaters it seemed an apt opportunity to embark on a kati krawl. Read more »

Biryani Cart’s Juicy Wings Gets Tabled Until March: There's been some grumbling about the new Juicy Wings Cart (on 46th and 6th) being AWOL and yesterday Lunch'er Matt confirmed the bad news: "Just got back from the Biryani cart. They won't have any wings or cheesesteaks until March. They blamed the cold."  Urgh.  Another reason to hate the freakin' weather.

Biryani Cart Finally Adds a Paneer Roll to Their Lineup

Biryani Cart

My very first kati roll experience was at Kati Roll Co (the EV branch, sorry Midtown kids). My friend encouraged me to order their Achari Paneer roll, a spicy vegetarian roll filled with onions and paneer, a simple Indian cheese, topped with plenty of hot sauce. It was love at first bite. I’ve long hoped that Biryani Cart, my go to midtown kati roll spot, would add a paneer roll to the menu, so I was pretty excited to hear that last week they finally did. Read more »

Biryani Cart Debuts New Kati Roll Today: It looks like Kati Roll isn't the only one adding to their menu this month... today the Biryani Cart (on 46th and 6th) will debut a brand new "Paneer Roll with deep fried Indian cottage cheese, caramelized onion and topped with a creamy chaat masala sauce".  ($7 for 2.)

Biryani Cart’s “Juicy Wings” Opens Today

A little over a month ago we told you that the Biryani Cart (on 46th btw. 6+7th) had plans to a brand new cart across the street selling their version of hot wings. Well, today is the day!  We got word last night that the Juicy Wings cart will be launching today on the NW corner of 46th and 6th.  According to the menu, they’ll be serving 4 kinds of wings, plus mini philly cheesesteak sandwich. Early adopters, let us know how it is in the comments!

Biryani Cart to Launch New “Juicy Wings” Spinoff!

It looks like the Vendy Award winning Biryani Cart (on 46th and 6th) is on a roll. A few weeks ago they got a new logo, and added a few new sensible menu items. After all, if you sell biryani and kati rolls, adding a new curry or dal doesn’t seem too strange. But hot wings!? Yes, you read that right. The Biryani Cart has a brand new cart hitting the streets soon serving their special brand of hot wings and steak and cheese subs. As you can see from the brand new sign they’ll carry four kinds of wings (all deep fried and then sauced) plus I’m guessing some kind of sauce-less option for those who like their wings plain. We’re also hearing that the Philly cheese-steaks will be small (like a hot dog bun) and come two to an order- like their famous Kati Rolls. The cart will be parked on the opposite side of the street (the NW corner of 46th and 6th) and we’re hearing it is less than two weeks away from launching. To say we’re excited for this one would be quite the understatement…

Biryani Cart’s New Dal is a Nice Addition to Their Menu

I’m embarrassed to admit that last week while I was doing some lunch time errands, I noticed this sign promoting the new specials at the Biryani Cart (on 46th and 6th).  I was in a rush, and not completely sure they were new, plus I had already had lunch- so I didn’t bother stopping.  But once I read on Friday that these specials were totally new, I had to go check out the channa dal!
