Wafels & Dinges Now Has A Permanent Home:

In case you missed it yesterday, Wafels & Dinges opened the doors of a brick and mortar location in the East Village. It’s out of bounds of our downtown coverage area, but since many of you are fans, we figured it was worth a mention. Perhaps snag yourself a wafel from their cart at the base of the Brooklyn Bridge in celebration?

Your Head Luncher Will Be Running Away For A Couple Of Days:

In case you ever wondered where the calories in all of the lunches featured on Downtown Lunch go, the answer is: Marathon training. There won’t be any posts up for a couple of days this week as I will be using energy from all of that street meat and sandwiches (and then some) to fuel me during today's Boston Marathon. Never fear though, I will be limping my way to lunch again by mid-week!
