Best Lunch Exclusive Dishes?

AgentRed Aug 14, 2013 10:51 PM

Hey folks,

I have a few days off from the office this week/next and that gives me the opportunity to try afternoon eats I usually cant get to.

So what're the best dishes/restos that are only available for lunch? Right now I have the burger at Peter Luger's (served till 3:45) but I'd love to hear about others.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions,

            Not just the duck sandwich but the duck over rice (in single portions) and lots of other duck dishes are only available at lunch time.

            Along the same line as Luger, the burger at Wolfgang's.

            In fact, the lunch and dinner menus at Wolfgang's are rather different.
