I know we have a few Midtown Lunchers stuck outside the official boundaries in that no man’s land between Midtown and Chelsea in the high 20s low 30s between 8th and 10th Ave. Lunch’er Jamie (who now runs our Philly site) used to work over there… and thankfully so do the folks over at Serious Eats! They just posted about the amazingly delicious looking, and surprisingly ML friendly Ovest Pizzoteca (on 27th btw. 10+11th) which not only has some delicious looking under $10 pizzas and lunch specials, but also their own version of the pizzacone (and it looks far better than this!) You didn’t think we’d go the whole day without a single pizzacone mention, did you?

The Serious Eats New York crew hit up the newly opened Mantao Chinese Sandwiches (on 53rd btw. 2+3rd) the other day and posted a pretty comprehensive (and attractive, thanks to the photos of Robyn Lee) look at their offerings:
The sandwiches range from $2.50 to $4.50. They’re dainty thingsâ€”you’d probably want two for a meal, although one makes a nice snack. The soft and fluffy sesame seed-topped bread is the best part about the sandwiches. The fillings, while not bad, are less memorable (right now, at least; hopefully they’ll improve with time).
