Le Cirque's Lunch Box

Le_cirqueIt seems New Yorkers no longer have to take out a second mortgage to dine at Sirio Maccioni’s Le Cirque.  That is, for lunch anyway.  This week Le Cirque’s launching their cafe "Lunch Box", a three-course meal for $25.  To hell with that $8 sandwich from Mangia, which apparently arrives with a complementary grasshopper (see Eater for complete details).  If only mom had packed my Charlie’s Angels lunch box with red snapper and creme brulee.   Of course it doesn’t really come in a box, it’s Le Cirque.  A do-it-yourself menu, guests can choose from an array of savories – veal meatballs, spagetthi chittara and fava bean & pecorino sadly – then cap off the feast with tiramisu.  While not really a bargain, it’s also not such a bad deal for those who’ve never dined Maccioni-style or glimpsed the lionized restaurateur in the flesh.  And for ladies who lunch, it’s practically free.

151 E. 58th St., btwn. Lexington & 3rd Aves.
