Looking for a new spot for lunch I literally just walked up 50th Street to see what was further west. I came upon Blue Dog Kitchen Bar, an upscale Diner serving very good food in a cute and cozy setting. Instead of your standard bread and butter they bring over a very good whole grain bread and marmalade when you first sit down to sate your hunger.
Blue Dog has a fairly large menu of usual diner food suspects, but many with a global spin that includes French, Mexican and Southern American flavors. Prices are a little on the high side but there are a number of options for under $15.00 and the quality of the food is very good. I had their Tuna and Avocado sandwich that came with some very tasty fries for $12.00.
The Coffee here is very good and comes in an Alice in Wonderland sized mug that is refillable. Along with Iced Teas, Soda, etc they have a full bar. If you’re looking for a good lunch spot in Midtown a notch above most for sandwiches, burgers, salads and such Blue Dog is well worth checking out.
