a little NY comfort soothes the soul
:Bay + Bloor:
The New Yorker Deli is a good example of a common theme amongst my peoples. It's one of those restaurants that they've never eaten at, but know where it is, and have always wondered. I think wondering is over-rated, I prefer to go in and chowdown. That's exactly what happened several years ago. I admit, I had passed by it a few dozen times, but usually after having eaten or on my way to eat elsewhere. But since my first meal, it has consistenly served great food at a good price, and all under an hour. All that may explain why it's a popular lunch run for many officeheads, including myself. It's usually one of the first places I recommend when planning a lunch date, like today. My dear friend Bana recently went back to work and we met up for a long overdue chittychat. She was one of the first friends I ever made in Toronto and is one of the inspirations for my starting this blog. She's supportive like that.
NY Deli has a huge menu which is ideal if you're eating with a bunch of colleagues. In fact, I recommend this place to anyone who wants a quick, delicious lunch, especially if they're not sure what they want. There is a wide selection of deli sandwiches (duh), breakfast options and regular lunch fare. My boss loves their matzo ball soup. I love their corned beef hash and eggs.
It's a working lunch done right.
