Late lunch deals - Financial District
I recall reading somewhere about there being late lunch deals in the financial district - half price sandwiches, etc., after 2:00pm or so.
As I generally eat a later lunch, seeing if anyone knows about such deals!
I can start with one I've come across - there's a buffet-style food-by-the-pound place near the corner of Pine and Battery called Chez Carla (Yelp profile: http://www.yelp.com/biz/4ODXuV9cSeX_V...). They also have sandwiches and soups (never tried). The normal price of the buffet items is around $6/lb, but they cut it in half after 2:00pm. Food is decent, especially at the price. They have a serviceable roast chicken, roasted garlic potatoes, green beans, a little salad bar, a few other things I'm forgetting, and usually a couple rotating hot dishes (a pasta, usually something vegetarian).
Nothing to go out of the way for, but a good standby if working in the area.
Ha, I would have never known about this place, just got back from grabbing lunch there. Their selection was VERY similar to Chez Carla (only, with more options) - enough so that I initially thought that they may be owned by the same people. Though, once eating, the food here just wasn't as good. Everything was heavily salted, and some things tasted less than fresh (though, perhaps that's my fault, eating the late lunch!),
Thanks for this info! I often eat lunch very late (I'm eating it now...) and had no idea that these discounted options existed. I'm right around the corner from Chez Carla, so will try that and report back.
