Cer Te Announces Their June Specials

A new month means new specials at Cer Te’s two Midtown restaurants. By popular demand, Cer Te (on 55th btw. 5+6th) has brought back their lobster french toast sandwich for the month of June. And over at Pizza by Cer Te (on 56th btw. Lex+Park) you can now get a “Jackson Heights Pizza” featuring chicken mole poblano, chili corn, cotija cheese, queso fresco, and salsa on a masa crust, which looks… interesting? Early adopters, definitely let us know what you think in the comments.

Celebrate October at Cer Te With a German Sloppy Joe

A new month means a new sandwich at Cer Te (on 55th btw. 5+6th) and October’s bad boy looks like a real mess… or messed?  Not sure what coincidental slaw is, but hash on a pretzel bun sounds pretty good to us.  Early adopters, let us know how it is in the comments.

TITT is Gone at Certe, Montauk Hangover Starts Tomorrow

If you were hoping for a taste of Certe’s “TITT” (the Throw in the Towel lamb burger with tzatziki sandwich) you’re SOL.  It will be replaced by the Montauk Hangover starting tomorrow.  For those of you who don’t remember this one from August 2011, you’ll want to make sure to grab a fork and a knife on your way out.

Buffalo Chicken Wraps: My Search for Midtown’s Best

Let’s face it. Buffalo chicken wraps are great. Back in college, my friends and I would visit the local dive bar for wings at least two nights a week, and ever since, I’ve had a deep appreciation for this thing we call “buffalo chicken.” Created upstate in Buffalo, Wikipedia describes the sauce as cayenne pepper hot sauce plus melted butter or margarine. When mixed with fried, breaded chicken and sharp, blue cheese, deliciousness is bound to ensue! Although not traditional, wraps are a convenient means of buffalo chicken consumption (it’s nice that the whole experience can be folded into a neat, handheld bundle) and they tend to be less messy than their sandwich counterparts. Over the course of the past week, I took it upon myself to try out several different buffalo chicken wraps around Midtown. I was actually a little surprised at how difficult it was to find these things for under $10, but in the end I managed to uncover four decent options.

Read my findings after the jump…

Certe’s ‘Count of Stonington’ is Great Lobster Salad at a Great Price

Last week, Alexa forewarned of Certe’s June sandwich, the Count of Stonington. This baby’s got lobster salad and spicy grano padana frico on vanilla-honey and sea-salted French toast. Yep, I was just as overwhelmed by that description as you- but it didn’t sufficiently prepare for what was to come.
