Midtown Lunch a lot. Brownie and I avoid chain restaurants. Brownie and I had high hopes for the former Sugo! e Basilico place on 5th Avenue.
Those hopes were dashed Tuesday evening on my walk to Penn Station. I had seen work being done at the new spot, but no evidence as to what the final outcome would be. Alas, the new Europa signage means yet another boring salad/sandwich/soup place. Midtown is being slowly conquered by such places, the two biggest conquistadors being Europa and it's twin, Cosi. I resolve to boycott such establishments in the new year. That's right Cosi, you can keep my free sandwich or salad that on my Cosi card!! I will be taking my lunch dollars elsewhere.
Happy Thanksgiving, Serious Eaters!
