Lessons in Shilling: If you are going to hop in a forum, and shill for your generic Midtown deli you probably shouldn't use "good food" as a tag. Or the address. Or the phone number. This short class was free, Cafe Bonjour, but the next one will cost you.

Generic Deli Tries to Get in On the $5 Lunch Thing


Thanks to Subway $5 is the magic lunch number these days. Not only has Arby’s, KFC, Taco Bell, and Pizza Hut rolled out $5 deals of their own, but now generic Midtown delis are getting into the act.  They were closed yesterday, but Cafe Bonjour (on 38th btw. 5+6th) reopened today with a new $5 lunch special.  For a fiver you can an entree with one side, a cheeseburger deluxe with fries, or any of their sandwiches.  No drink included.

Oooooh, new business idea! I can take a dump in a box and label it $5 (I’ve got time)… but just because something is $5 doesn’t make it worthwhile, right? (And why waste your time when you can always have the original $5 lunch… a plate of street meat!)  You know how we feel about generic Midtown delis, so we’ll let you guys be the early adopters on this one… if Cafe Bonjour has anything worthwhile, let us know in the comments.
