Couple Blocks Away From Lunch: What's the Restaurant Near Your Office?

Posted By on Thu, Jan 26, 2012 at 5:47 AM

In changing jobs, one important detail is often a second thought: the nearby restaurants. People in downtown and midtown have no idea how lucky they are to have the choice of so many restaurants.

People working near the airport, in a hospital, or an office park know what I'm talking about.

The restaurant nearest the Scene used to be Jimmy Carl's Lunch Box, and we miss it. Providentially, the hot bar at Turnip Truck Urban Fare opened the week Jimmy Carl's closed.

Whiskey Kitchen, Sambuca, Cantina Laredo, Urban Flats, Ru San and Casablanca Coffee are also close enough to be contenders. And when the boss is paying (or, theoretically, would be paying), Watermark and Kayne Prime.

In my other job, the nearest restaurant is (wait for it) Chili's. That's right. Chili's. Say it again. Chili's. Sniff it and smell the majesty: Chili's is around the corner from my office.

Them's the breaks. What restaurant is around the corner from your office? Do you eat there? And what do you wish were nearby?
