Recently started working close to 149th and Grand Concourse and trying to find lunch options in the neighborhood that aren't Mickey D's or Subway.
Sit-down or carry-out within 10 minutes walk or so, or delivery from further out would work.
I'm down for whatever is good. Would love to find a bodega that dishes up some good stewed chicken or pork ribs. West African? Absolutely. Soul food? Yes. An above-average slice? Sure.
And yes, I have searched this board for ideas. Not much, and a lot of it several years old. The two most helpful threads:
So far, my list of places to try is: El Nuevo Delicioso, La Perla Mexicana, Bruckner Bar & Grill, Sam's Soul Food, and La Isla Cuchifrito (ate there once- average fried pork, below average rice and beans- will give it another shot with another dish).
Don't let me have to pack a sandwich every day....
