Lunch’er Seaweed passed along the sad news that The Country Kebab on Fulton St. (at Gold), where I’d only recently discovered some vegetarian delights, is closing as of today due to a rent increase. When I stopped by on Thursday, their last day of business, there was indeed a lengthy letter taped to each window and the door explaining in great detail why they were closing. From the look of it, they’re just as angry about a likely rent hike and loss of lease as I’m sure many of you will be, but you’ll still be able to order for delivery.

I know many of you are fans of Alfanoose on Maiden Lane (btw. Broadway & Nassau), but based on the couple of times I’ve eaten there I have to say I just don’t get the hype.

Midtown workers shouldn’t have all the fun, so to even the score, I’ve brought on Daniel Krieger as an official Downtown Lunch Correspondent to write up some of the tasty stuff you can get in the lower half of Manhattan.

Country Kebab is doing what many men do in a cart, but with seats and gelato! I’ve had this spot on my foodar for awhile now so I was excited to see what kind of Turkish food they were throwing down. Initially I was a bit put off by the fact that they were carrying gelato and ice cream, as I barely eat that stuff as it is, and if I do I don’t want to mix it with greasy chicken doner… ya dig?
