Lunch Areas

Hamburger_sandwich.jpgYesterday, I started a brand new job. The company is great, and all my new coworkers seem great! But, as is always the case when switching working areas, I was totally shiftless at lunch. It is a new neighborhood that I am not particularly familiar with, and because of training, it wasn’t even prime lunch time anymore, so I couldn’t tag along with others… So, I set out on my own. My new office is on 46th and 5th. If it had not been a holiday and the temperature was not frigid, I am confident that I would have been pleasantly surprised by the options, but because of those two things, I couldn’t find much to eat. I ended up with a very ordinary salad, which is my permanent lunchtime fallback.

The last office I worked in was on 30th and Park, and as I have discussed in the past, I firmly believe that Murray Hill is the worst lunch area in the city. There are so few lunch optionst, comparably. Before that, we were over on 19th and 5th, and that was lunch paradise! I almost wish that it had not been my first real job, because I am spoiled to all other lunch options for eternity!

Does anyone have any lunchtime suggestions for my new area?

    I highly recommend checking out the site For several months now, this guy has been documenting good lunch spots in the good lunch desert that is midtown.

    As for my personal opinion, I recommend “Good Burger” on 54th and Lex.

    Prime Burger on 51st between Fifth and Madison, right across from St.Pats. Fast delicious and reasonable.
