Two Midtown East Reopenings To Report

Good news for deli sandwich/Indian food enthusiasts of the eastern edge of ML territory! Hot Clay Oven (3rd btw. 44th+45th) has reopened after a slight revamp and addition to the menu (more on that ahead), and Sarge’s (3rd btw. 36th+37th) is back up and running  after a fire put them out of commission for more than a year.

Hot Clay Oven Closed for Renovations

After opening only five months ago, the Hot Clay Oven on 3rd Ave. (btw 44th+45th) is now closed for renovations. The sign in the window says it’s only temporary but doesn’t say how long it’s expected to last. Now that naan wraps are out of the question for the time being, where will you get your Indian fix in Midtown East?

Hot Clay Oven’s Naan Wrap Is Tasty, But Too Pricey for Indian

Last week, Hot Clay Oven finally opened on 3rd Ave. (btw 44th+45th) in Midtown East. You probably already know the drill for the “Indian Chipotle“: you choose whether you want a wrap, naan wrap, rice bowl, or salad, and get to pick from a menu of proteins, toppings, and sauces. So, how does the newest location stack up?

Hot Clay Oven Opens With 50% Off Deal

Hot Clay Oven, otherwise known as the Indian Chipotle, is now open on 3rd Ave. (btw 44th+45th), and they’re offering 50% off all entrees, plus unlimited toppings, for a limited time. The Indian fusion spot already has a location downtown, and offers a menu of wraps, rice, and salad bowls with a number of proteins, sauces, and toppings to choose from. We’ll have a review soon, but early adopters let us know what you think.  (Thanks to Lunch’er James for the tip!)

Hot Clay Oven Takes Over Old Hello Pasta Space


I’m not sure if Midtown needs another Chipotle inspired restaurant but here you go. Hot Clay Oven, an Indian fusion restaurant which “>started off with a downtown location, has taken over what was the last of the Hello Pasta locations on 3rd Ave btw 44th and 45th St. Here’s a look at the menu but basically you get a choice of rice, salad or naan then you add your protein, toppings and dressing. This whole Indian food with the Chipotle way of serving food isn’t new to Midtown. Desi Shack on Lexington and 39th St has already been doing it since last October but I wasn’t a fan of their food. And from what Andrea wrote, Hot Clay Oven may just turn out to be a solid lunch spot. More than anything though we hope that like their downtown location, they will open their doors on the first day with some free food!
