I've recently come across a new restaurant near Bloomingdale's. You see, I don't really venture outside the mall when I want to buy lunch sometimes and my vegetarian coworker always raved about this place. I've never really looked for it just because I've always usually craved something indulgent like burgers and french fries and if I wanted sandwiches or soups I would walk my butt up to Union Square and go to Boudin's.
Then I met up with one of my friends in high school and we decided to meet up for lunch one day and I decided to give Cafe Venue a shot.
I got the half salad/half sandwich combo. You can't tell from this photo but the portions were huge! The salad wasn't just romaine and dressing, it was greens with carrots, red onions, cucumbers, mushrooms and she was about to dump bleu cheese on it but I opted out of that. So it was a really great side salad and I only had half because it was a lot. My sandwich was turkey club and they did not skimp on the ingredients. She also sliced the avocado right in front of me and the bread was so soft and delicious. It came with tortilla chips and I think it comes with it when you get salad because my friend got soup and he didn't get any chips. I got all of this for about $8.00.
