I’ve walked by the strangeness that is Panini Tozt (on 50th btw. Mad+Park) so many times, but have never quite been interested enough to pull the trigger. After this email from Lunch’er Emily, I’m thinking that might have been a mistake.
I’ve been a longtime reader of Midtown Lunch, so I feel pretty confident you haven’t written about this newsstand that serves lunch well within ML’s price parameters, on 50th between Madison and Park. It’s called Panna Tozt, “European-style sandwiches,” or something like that. And yes, it’s in a real-deal newsstand.

Yeah, it was that good.
They have a standard menu of combos to choose from – which they throw on the panini press for you, and THEN they take it off and ask you what you want to add. (I like this – my lettuce doesn’t get weird and wilted and hot from being grilled.) And you can add anything – even fries!
