Taking Your Lunch Break in Chelsea

Mostly known for being the center of the New York art world, Chelsea is also developing a reputation as the urban renewal center of the city. What it lacks in pocket parks and atriums, it makes up in beautifully transformed industrial spaces that are perfect for savoring your lunch while relaxing or catching up with friends.

Taking Your Lunch Break in Central Midtown, New York

In this second installment of  “Taking Your Lunch Break”, we shift our focus to public places west of Fifth Avenue in Midtown. While they may lack the striking green scenery of the spots featured in last week’s post, these spaces possess their own unique charm and, most importantly, allow you to take a respite from the office during the day.

Taking Your Lunch Break in Midtown East, New York

There are so many things to dread during the work day: getting up, getting to work, responding to emails from certain people, interacting with certain people, the list goes on.

Guest Post: Bring Your Lunch to Work

The following post has been written by our friend Lauren who runs the food blog here2eat. Check out her blog and follow her on twitter @LNLella!

Hi Gang! I wanted to talk to you all quickly about the benefits both for the waistline and your wallet when it comes to bringing your lunch to work! I’ve always brought my lunch; it’s truly all I know. Now I’m not going to lead you down this path and say it isn’t time consuming. Because it is. But it’s certainly well worth it.

I work in NYC; I have co-workers who go out not only for breakfast but also for lunch, 5 days a week! This is where I considered myself savvy. Every Sunday, I hit the grocery store and buy food for the week; I usually spend around $35 – $40 on food for breakfast and lunch for 5 days. I usually always eat overnight oats for breakfast, so oats are usually already on hand. If you haven’t tried overnight oats, here are some of my go to recipes. I highly suggest!
