This week marks two years since I’ve started writing for you fine people on Midtown Lunch: Downtown and I thought it might be fun to tell you about some non-review lunches that I’ve eaten on a regular basis since I started working in the Financial District but haven’t ever written about. I’m saving my most shameful guilty pleasure lunch for the end of the week, but today you get the lunch that I’ve probably eaten the most when I’m crunched for time or can’t think of anything else imaginative to stuff in my face. That would be the catfish banh mi from Baoguette, extra spicy.

Cafe 41 opened in the old Patuca space on John St. (nr. Nassau) and offers most of the same generic deli fare that every other place in the Financial District does. They’re now trying to win our hearts with $1 plain slices, unless you’d rather go for a wrap or some pasta.

I’ve walked by the Ambizza Cafe Truck that’s been parked at Old Slip & Water, but haven’t had the chance to try it. There was a substantial line there yesterday and a glance at the menu shows they do meat kebabs and “the city’s best kofta” as well as a lamb burger & fries for a cheap price. Has anyone tried food from this truck? I might have to check it out, simply because I don’t want to miss out on the best kofta this city has to offer.
And….No Chinese Mirch Yet Again: A look at the ML Downtown Twitter Tracker shows Chinese Mirch is planning to park near Wall & Water since every cart known to man is downtown, no Chinese Mirch for us today, but Fun Buns cart is back at Water & Pine, Bongo Brothers is at Old Slip & Water, Mexicue's at Water & Broad, Our Heros is at Wall & Water, Sweetery's at Hudson & King, Rickshaw's at Hudson & Houston and Phil's Steaks is at Water & John. The WFC lot has Milk Truck, Red Hook Lobster, Andy's Italian Ice and Taim.
