Highlights From Our 5th Birthday Party

Crowd shot

On Saturday we gathered together at City Winery with a couple hundred of our closest friends to celebrate the 5 year anniversary of Midtown Lunch (yes, we too are surprised this thing has been around for 5 years!)   A great time was had by all thanks to the amazing food (provided graciously by Kwik Meal, The Biryani Cart, Cer Te, Ma Peche, Food Gallery 32, El Rey del Sabor, Tri Tip Grill, Wafels & Dinges, Miss Softee & the Rolling Cones, Kelvin Slush, and Momofuku Milk Bar) and the endless drinks courtesy of Brooklyn Brewery and GuS’s soda.

Check out the highlights, after the jump…

Tri Tip Serving Special Baby Bucks Today

Tri Tip Grill in Rock Center is testing out a brand new menu item today… the Baby Buck Slider. Thinly sliced tri tip on a Martin’s potato roll, with a side of horseradish sauce and au ju. They come 3 to an order for $6.99, and are only available today (although a little birdie told us that we may or may not be announcing on Monday that these will also be served at the Midtown Lunch 5th Birthday Party as well.)

Get a Little Buck For 5 Bucks at Tri Tip Grill Today: Got a little note from Tri Tip Grill yesterday touting the "best special we've ever done".  Today you can get a little buck sandwich for just $5.  The sandwich is normally priced at $6.99 and Blondie said it "may be the best thing in Rock Center".

Get a Tri Tip Grill Burrito For $6 Today

Burrito @ Tri-Tip GrillFrom Midtown Lunch’er Eric: “I’m not sure if you’ve ever ordered the burrito at Tri Tip Grill (in the Rock Center Concourse) but frankly it is amazing.  The chicken is always fresh unlike chipotle and the pico is top notch.  Anyway, after requesting that the  burrito be added to a special, Dave the very friendly owner over at TriTip has obliged… on Mondays, when you guys come in, say “Code Burro” (pronounced boo-rro) and you will get yourselves a $5.99 burrito.” And what do you know… today is Monday!

Lenten Fish Fridays: Tri Tip Grill’s Salmon is a Fish Feast

Tri Tip

Tri Tip Grill has quickly become a ML darling. For a chain restaurant they provide a good product at a decent value and they listen to what the customer wants (hello, Midtown Toasty!). And it’s easily one of the best brick and morters to come to Rock Center in ages. While they are best known for their beef, if you’re a huge salmon fan and observing meatless Fridays you might want to make this a Lenten Lunch destination.

Tri Tip Grill Adds Toasty to the Permanent Menu

midtown toasty

Two weeks ago, I issued a challenge to Tri Tip to out toasty Dunkin Donuts’ new Big ‘N’ Tasty , and they hit back with the Midtown Toasty– 3 strips of bacon, a fried egg, melted cheese on 2 toasted pieces of challah bread for $3.99 . Tri Tip owners promised if they sold 100 of these sandwiches they’d add it to the menu. Despite Ash Wednesday and a Lenten Friday potentially driving down demand for this sandwich, the Midtown Toasty prevailed and according to the cashier I spoke with, it is now a permanent part of the menu. Seeing as I lay down the gauntlet on this one, I hit up Tri Tip to see how the Midtown Toasty stacks up. Read more »

If Tri Tip Sells 27 Toasties Tomorrow Morning It Will Be Added to the Permanent Menu

Last week we challenged Tri Tip Grill (in the Rock Center concourse) to introduce a kick ass breakfast sandwich. They answered the call this week and said that if they sold 100 of the sandwiches they would add it permanently the menu. Well they just informed us that 73 have been sold, so tomorrow morning is our last chance to hit the 100 mark. The sandwich is available until 11am.

Tri Tip Steps Up to Our Dunkin Challenge

Last week I issued a challenge to Tri Tip Grill to outdo Dunkin Donuts’ Big ‘n’ Tasty (the new bacon, egg and cheese on Texas toast), and it only took a few days for them to accept our “suggestion”.  From the owner of Tri Tip:

Let me introduce to you, the aptly named “Midtown Toasty.” 3 strips of bacon, a fried egg, melted cheese on 2 awesome toasted pieces of our challah bread. After checking out the Dunkin’ toasty, there’s no doubt that we are going to be anointed the king of the toasties. The best part is it’s bigger, better, freshly made and is only $.50 more… you can also substitute the bacon for tri tip, if you so choose.

TriTip will be serving the Midtown Toasty ($3.99) all week, and they promise “if we sell 100 of them, we will add it to our breakfast menu permanently.”

Tri Tip Launches Wednesday Chicken Caesar Wrap Steal

Midtownlunch perennial favorite, Tri Tip Grill, has always been a crowd pleasing (but posh) lunch time treat. However, they’ve shown an aptitude for off-setting lunchtime splurges with daily specials, such as the infamous Tri Tip Tuesday. And recently, they’ve introduced a new weekly Wednesday deal – a chicken Caesar wrap with a 12oz soup and drink for $9.99. Considering that these components would add up to around $15 piecemeal, it’s a tempting proposition.
