Lauren McInnes 12 comments

Two years ago we shared our picks for where to eat near Times Square, the focal point of New York's tourist economy and home to many a chain mega-restaurant. But amid the mammoth TGI Friday's and Guy Fieri's 500-seat restaurant, you'll find plenty of quality places for a quick bite, a casual lunch, or a full sit-down meal. This guide covers the picks from our original guide, plus our new favorite spots we've encountered since July 2011. More

A Sandwich a Day: P.W.C.D. Roll at Biryani Cart

A Sandwich a Day Lauren Rothman Post a comment

In addition to the delicately spiced rice dish from which it takes its name, midtown Halal cart Biryani Cart (which, yes, we love quite a bit) offers up several very respectable kati rolls: addictive wraps of meats, vegetables, and eggs stuffed inside buttery griddled paratha, a stretchy, whole wheat flatbread, or leaner roti.

Vendy Awards Vote Recount?!

Erin Zimmer Post a comment

So maybe we were sore losers after the recent Vendy Awards, believing deep down that Biryani Cart got robbed. And maybe our hearts skipped a beat when we heard judge Daisy Martinez possibly skipped the Biryani's signature kati roll, based... More
