Grub Street interviewed the singer Ne-Yo last week and discovered that his favorite place to eat in New York is the Cafe Metro around the corner from The London (on 54th & 7th Ave.) Really? Come on! I was thinking maybe they did something special… but nope. In fact, it’s one of the smaller ones. But Ne-Yo swears by their “low-carb wheat pasta” adding “I’m not difficult to please.” Clearly.
Looking at the Midtown Lunch Restaurant Map, there does appear to a black hole of nothingness in the area directly around the London- but there is that new daytime location of the Famous Halal Guys street meat cart on the SW corner of 53rd & 7th.
