Best Lunch Exclusive Dishes?

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.

              Hats off to you both for the duck recommendation, stopped by Ssam and it was fantastic!!! The duck steamed bun was also great. One down!!

                Torrisi turkey sandwich for lunch tomorrow? they serve it Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays only.

        2. The decadent chicken sandwich at The Nomad.. Chicken, Foie Gras and Truffle in a brioche bun..

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

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