Downtown Lunch: You Don't Have to Eat at McDonald's!
No Downtown review from Daniel this week… but here are a few little tidbits that may be interesting to the Downtown Lunch’ers.
The other day the New York Post reported that in order to save money, a lot of Wall Street investment banker types were eating at McDonald’s! Guys, have you not been reading Daniel Krieger’s Friday Downtown Lunch column right here on ML? You don’t need to eat at McDonald’s… there are plenty of better cheap lunch options Downtown. Sadly, though, Mangia will not be one of those options. They are closing permanently today.
On a lighter note, Daniel did send along these awesome photos of the Rickshaw Dumpling Truck which has been spending Thursdays downtown. Although in these trying economic times it’s hard to understand why anybody who works so close to Chinatown would ever spend $6 on dumplings! (Midtown Lunch’ers, on the other hand, can be a desperate lot sometimes.)
More dumpling truck porn is after the jump…
