It’s a struggle to find healthy, quick food selections when you are in Midtown. For both business folks and tourists alike it can be hard to find something to grab and know it will be good for you. Look no further than Proper Food.
Located at 60 West 44th and just steps away from Grand Central is this must to hit your list. It is rare to experience such beautiful dishes in a takeaway box.
From the moment you walk in the location you feel a sense of bliss – a feeling of pure happy. This tone is carried with the bright smiles you find with the employee behind the cash register and the one stocking the fridge and answering recommendations.
The creation of such glorious dishes from salads to entrees to heated breakfast is a piece of art. With 10 locations (NYC and San Franciso), this high-quality grab-and-go concept was created by a husband and wife duo as an answer to the dilemma between eating well and eating fast. They experienced the concept in London and brought it over to the states with the newest location on 44th Street carrying on the shinning work.
All items are prepared from scratch each morning by Chef Munoz, who hails from a Michelin-Starred kitchen, and consist of locally-sourced ingredients one typically wouldn’t find in a grab-and-go store, such as Pulpo Ensalada with wild fresh octopus, Coconut Prawn & Kale Salad, Argentinian Steak, Mexican Tofu Burrito, fresh juices and much more.
No selection is a bad selection. You feel a sense of gratitude for knowing you can feel healthy and also not break the bank. Prices are incredibly affordable.
It will make any New Yorker applaud loudly after a visit here.
