So you just got paid, which means Capital One and Bank of America got paid too, but you’re hungry all the same. You’re going to see a play on the upper east side, and you’re hungry. So you go to Menu Pages and try to find that magical combination of good location, high rating, and good prices.
You tell your lovely fiance to meet you, but since she broke her smartphone last week she is paranoid and writes the address on her hand:
Once you get there, though, it’s worth the ink poisoning. Today, magic happened (or was it science?). Glaze Teriyaki is a speed-walk-fast-food restaurant on Lexington and 54th with a rustic hipster vibe and hearty teriyaki eats. The chicken was crispy, the sauce a little sweet but a good flavor nonetheless, and the portions generous. They had a great selection of Boylan’s sodas – I had the root beer. And the meal comes with a salad as well to help stave off diabetes – though the carrot ginger dressing was deliciously not helping in that regard. This was all with cool reggae beats in the background and friendly staff who bring you your food after you order and pay. There’s even singles tables for one which is great for lunch.
