viva cuba! viva food!

Here’s my favorite midtown Manhattan lunch spot. It’s a tiny tiny Cuban cafeteria tucked onto West 46th St. just off of Times Square. It’s called Margon and according to the sign outside, it’s New York’s Best Kept Secret. I don’t know about that. If you don’t get there early for lunch you don’t get a seat.

It’s nothing fancy. If you’re looking for elegant surroundings you’d best steer clear. But if you’d like some authentic Cuban grub for under $10 bucks, you can’t do better. Here are a few of the daily specials.


I ALWAYS go with the oxtail and a big plate of black beans and rice with fried sweet plantains. They have killer empanadas, too. God, I want to lick my monitor.

The long hours at my new yob means that I don’t see The Daughters as much as I use to. The other unfortunate by-product is that I can’t keep up with the blogs in my Google Reader. I really miss it. I don’t have time to read or comment. I’m New Guy at the Investment Bank and it’s too soon to read blogs at work.

Can everyone please put their lives/blogs on hold until I can get back to you? Is that asking a lot?

Isn’t Friday I’m In Love by The Cure just the happiest damn song ever? How ironic is that?!
