As is customary here on Midtown Lunch, every Tuesday we’ll profile a different lunch’er and get their recommendations for places to eat in Downtown NYC. This week, we have fellow food blogger Katie who is trying to kick her anti-seafood habit and has a short, but solid, list of favorite lunches.
Name: Katie Ett
Occupation: Officially, I’m a facility coordinator, but I’m a full-time blogger in my heart. (I have three blogs, and that’s not even close to all of them.)
Where you work: A software company as far downtown as you can get without actually being in the water.
Favorite Kinds of Food: On the high end, really mundane ingredients done so well they surprise me. On the low end, all of the terrible chain restaurants from my hometown in Ohio that you can only find in Times Square here.
Least Favorite Foods: Tomatoes. And all seafood, although I’ve been trying to get over that so my boyfriend will take me to Per Se as a reward.
Favorite Lunches Downtown: Tabasco chicken from Water Street Deli (get it with a side of baked ziti!) on Water (btw. Broad & Moore), roast pork and plantains from Sophie’s Cuban (Multiple Locations), and zeppoles from The Grotto on New St. (btw. Exchange Pl. & Beaver) for dessert every day.
The “go-to” lunch place you and your co-workers eat at too often: Flavors on Whitehall St., just because it’s right out our back door. At least they sell chocolate pudding and the best Oreo brownies you can imagine. Read more »
