They have a very nice $28 3 course prix fixe at lunch with a few choices for each course. Service was nice. Waiter had no problem reheating the miso matzoh ball soup for 2 of my co-workers. Returned to the table promptly with steam rising from the bowls. I'd go back and try the regular menu.
Monica, we must work around the corner from each other.
Monday, salad from Chopt.
Tuesday, catering from Dishes.
Wednesday, sandwich from Delmonico's.
Thursday, salad from Chopt.
Friday, falafel at Soom Soom and a coffee at Ninth St., which opened on 56th bet. Park and Lex.
Unusual that I didn't manage Land of Plenty once during the week.
Chopt and Just Salad seem to be the it place for young, somewhat trendy office workers to get their lunch in my immediate neighborhood. It's actually enough of a meet market that Just Salad has their own website for single.
That said, I usually have salad for lunch and the offerings at those two establishments are worth the extra couple dollars compared to your standard Midtown deli. I ended up trying to "economize" by getting my salad from Gigi's last Friday and was really disappointed.
Monday - Hae Mool Pa Jun at Kum Gang Sul (if i have that spelled right)
Tuesday - Lobster bisque and an Italian hero sandwich from Balduccis
Wednesday - skipped lunch after a huge breakfast at Landmarc
Thursday Crab and blue cheese dip and Sausage platter at Waterfront Ale House
Friday - hot and sour soup, jelllyfish and pork belly appetizer at Szechuan Gourmet
Mon: leftovers of my version of this salad (massage the dressing into the greens):
And a double espresso
Tues: kind of embarressing, but half a loaf of the tumeric/hazelnut bread from maison kayser, and a double espresso from sumptown
Wed: a salad the size of my head from sweetgreens (great unique selection of toppings
)Thurs: i had a nasty dental appt, so i ate a percoset and "mucho mango" smoothie-extra coconut please- from juice generation
Fri: homemade tomato/lentil/fennel soup with a maison kayser olive bun
I can't remember what I had for lunch yesterday much less for the entire week. The only thing that stands out in my mind was the lunch I had at the Four Seasons in LA. Nice fish.
went to Shake shack at Grand central terminal early like before 12 o'clock early but the line was already too long so I went to the GC oyster market for a tuna sandwich and a glass of cold beer. still needed something sweet so I went back to Shack shack to see if they had a separate line for custard but this location doesn't...then I remembered Kosmose's recommendation on Pomme Palais pastry shop at Palace hotel. picked up a Napoleon and an strawberry eclair. Napoleon was good but didn't like the eclair at all...kinda pricy at $6 a piece too.
Yes. I found Pomme Palais is good at pastry dough + cream stuff, such as Napoleon and St. Honoré, which are really good. Eclair and Charlotte were a little better than average even in New York standards, where good French pastries are rare.
Try St. Honoré next time. It was really good too.
is eclair at Pomme palais better or do you think Lady M makes it better. Every time i go to Lady M to get the eclair, it's always sold out.
The eclair I got from Pomme Palais wasn't good at all in my opinion especially for $6. It was cold, chewy...didn't have much flavor. The only thing I liked was the little crunchy chocolate balls on top of the eclair.
I will try the St Honore next time, thanks!
Definitely Lady M's eclair is far better than Pomme Palais', although the latter is still better than Epicerie Boulud's, IMHO, whose choux is dry and hard as rock.
Michel Cluizel on Fifth Avenue, a chocolate shop from France, also sells eclair and it's only decent, and not great. It's really difficult to find excellent eclair in New York.
Tesday: Tuna burger and a glass of Allagash, then a slice of Napoleon and eclair from Pomme Palais
Wednesday: Schizhuan dumpblings and Braised fish stew with vegetable from Land of Plenty
Thursday:Lemon herb grilled chicken sandwich from Treehaus
Friday: Had 2 yakimochi from Cafe Zaiya for breakfast. Going to cafe Hong Kong for peking pork chops, salt and pepper squid and fried chicken garlic sauce. Thanks to Chowhound, I have been going to Chinatown for lunch almost every Friday.
Monday - I forget
Tuesday BCD Tofu House
Wednesday big breakfast, skipped lunch
Thursday - Kim chi jigae at Kum Gang Sul
Today - hot Italian hero at Carmine's (surprisingly good!)
Mon: homemade bastardized borscht with barley
Tues: too many garlic knots from group delivery, dbl espresso
Wed: miso soup, cashew tofu veggie thing
Thurs: the smashed clif bar (peanut butter) from the bottom of my handbag, and a crappy bitter espresso from bouchon bakery, a salted caramel macaron
Fri: the mezze plate from le pan quotidian, dbl espresso that was better than bouchon's
Monday - hard boiled egg, avocado, scallion, tomato, and radish at home (aka ziggy charcuterie)
Tuesday - chicken over rice at the the chicken over rice guy 51/11th. Best in the area if I may add
Wednesday - Tacos and fried chicken from Los tacos and hybird (Kathryn, not bad ;))
Thursday - beef stew with rice and beans at Lali (yummy Dominican)
Friday - ceviche at Inti (finally. Fantastic)
Tuesday- 2 mushroom slices from Cer te
Wednesday- tonkotsu ramen from Nikai and Creme brulee doughssant from Chikalicious via Treehaus
Thursday- Specken wolf pizza from Roberta's, macaron from Macaron Parlour and pork belly bun from Hong Kong street cart at Madison square eat, pizza was good..though at $12, toppings were stingy as hell, macarons were just ok...pork belly bun was not salty enough and didn't have enough flavor..actually it was pretty disappointing. I paid for a brisket taco from Delaney bbq but the wait was so long that I said forget it and got the money back and left.
On the way back, I got a medium gelato from Eataly.
Friday- tomorrow..diet day, hard boiled egg and an apple.
Mon - Maoz falafel
Tues - chicken burrito from Chipotle
Wed - carnitas burrito from Sabor de Mexico
