Any CHers up for Midtown weekday lunch?

I know a few of you Midtown East-ers got together for lunch a few months ago. Would anyone be interested in doing so again sometime soon? My office is at 58th and Lex, but will go anywhere in Midtown.

  1. Depending on when, I'd be game.

    1. that's quite close to Monica and me. I'd definitely be up for a repeat of Land of Plenty or anything else.

        I was trying to remember where you guys went last time and I thought it was Land of Plenty. That's my favorite late night office dinner spot.

        Isn't ellenost in the general vicinity too?

          Yeah, I believe she is.

          Splurge lunch at Ma Peche may be in order if you can get her to join.

          1. re: coasts

            Yes, I'm in the neighborhood too (55 & 6th). Ma Peche would be a lot of fun. It's dim sum style with additional specials waiter-served (delicious fried chicken).

            If it's a smaller group, Betony has a 2 course lunch for $38 which is lovely.

            Let me know what you decide. Love to join for lunch.

            1. re: ellenost

              I haven't been to Ma Peche since the switch to the dim sum format -- I would love that! If anyone interested wants to e-mail me (lauraoratliff@gmail), perhaps we can get a little group together.

        1. My co-workers wont go back with me to Ma Peche (they just dont get it) so ye.. I'm available

              One cant eat anything remotely spicy
              One requires no mayo or cheese of any kind in anything
              One can only go to Arriba Arriba for Mexican since Chimichangas is his true passion

              So ye, you right

                Wonder what they say about you.

                "Zigs, he eats ... feet!?!"

                1. re: Ziggy41

                  I really did LOL at the last one.

                  Thanks to everyone who's e-mailed me so far! I'll send out a group e-mail this week so we can get something set up.

                    1. re: ellenost

                      Haven't yet! Waiting to get together a group to decide on a consensus. E-mail me if you'd be interested!

            2. Ma Peche sounds good.
              I probably can't make it if it's next week otherwise, I'd love to have another midtown lunch with you guys.
              Let me know when you guys decide on date and time.

              1. What's your e-mail address? Where do I find it?

                  It's a few posts up. laura o ratliff at gmail

                2. Don't forget about us downtowners . . .will travel for food.

                  1. Keep me in the loop. I am not in on weekdays often but could be tempted.

                    1. I work at 60th and Lex and would love to join you. I'll send you an e-mail.

                      1. OK, just sent an e-mail to everyone who expressed interest to me via e-mail. Let me know if you didn't receive it. More details TK for anyone else who might like to join once we've nailed down a specific date.

                          if it didn't happen yet, I'm interested, I'll try to figure out the email address.
                          I emailed, but had hard time with the i's and l's in the email , so i emailed all possibilities I think. I look forward to a fun meal.

                        2. l'm always down for lunch, wherever it may be. l'm EV-based, but midtown is no problem.

                          1. My email is in my profile. Please keep me in the loop.

                            1. The last emails were discussing this coming Monday or Tuesday, but I have not gotten anything indicating a decision on this. Does anyone know if it is happening?

                              1. Hi Guys - did this ever happen? If the date was pushed back, I'd love to join. I just can't go to Chop't another day this month...
