Another must on the to-eat-list for New York seems to be Café Gitane in Nolita, but when we were in the mood for lunch so did everyone else. Instead of queueing for ages we walked around the corner and chose another cosy place to eat. That’s a great thing with New York; if an area has one nice resurant that you know of there are without a doubt more good ones in the same area.
We ended up in Oficina Latina and is a pan-Latino restaurant with a nice lunch menu. Also our friend Linus had joined the gang at this point, so I can show you even more from the menu.
Claes chose a monster of a sandwich with steak, bacon, fried egg and pickles and it seem to never end. He just ate and ate and still had the whole thing left on it plate. It seemed.
Emma chose a more normal sized chicken salad that looked really nice and fresh.
I wanted a burger and I guess you just have to take my word for it that it is what is hidden underneath all that cheese. Cheese and pickled peppers were actually really nice on a burger, just fyi.
We liked this place, and it is perfect for a laid-back lunch. That burger and steak sandwich would also cure any hangover. Promise!24 Prince Street New York NY 1001
