This Just In: Today is Last Day for Blimpie’s Special Sandwich: I guess yesterday's report was a little too hopeful.  A lunch'er just emailed to say that the Blimpie on 46th btw. 5+6th will be closing forever after today.  Orders for the special Indian vegetarian sandwich with doritos will be taken until 5:30 p.m. Sorry...

Thursday is the Final Day for Blimpie’s Special Spicy Indian Sandwich

Blimpie Off the Menu "Special Vegetarian" Sandwich

This terrible news was just sent in from Midtown Lunch’er Elizabeth about the Blimpie on 46th btw. 5+6th:

I know you’ve called out this Blimpie for the scary vegetarian sandwich, but I just went for my favorite ghetto lunch today, and there are signs saying it is closing. It sounds like it was supposed to close tomorrow but it has been extended through Thursday. So they are offering two specials: free combo with the purchase of a giant sandwich, or $1 combo with the purchase of a regular sandwich.

This is terrible news for all the fans of the “Indian” special spicy sandwich (with Doritos)… and bad news for any fans of Blimpies in general- which seem to be disappearing at an alarming rate. The Blimpie on 35th btw. 7+8th closed last month.

Another Blimpie With Spanish Food in the Back Bites the Dust


There was a time when Midtown was teeming with Blimpies that had Spanish food in the back (there were two.)  Now there are none. The more famous Blimpie sub shop with Spanish food (on 6th btw. 37+38th) closed awhile ago, and the spanish food moved next door into the Indian newsstand. Now the other one (on 35th btw. 7+8th) has also closed, and there is no word on whether the spanish food will be moving to another location.

Coincidentally enough, I received word of a new Blimpie sighting… this one with Sushi! (Will wonders never cease.)
