In the song "Carry Out," Justin Timberlake sings, "Number one, I'll take two number three's/That's a whole lot of you and a side of me." Frankly, take out isn't that sexy in our lives. However, that doesn't mean that it isn't an incredibly valuable thing on those nights when you have the dangerous combination of hunger and exhaustion. When your day has beaten you down to the point where you can barely turn on your stove, what other choice do you have?
Take out in New York is aplenty, whether you envision yourself indulging in the slurpy noodles of your infatuation at Momofuku Noodle Bar or getting in on the salad craze at Chopt. In a city that never sleeps, there is rarely time to eat well. These meals can be eaten on the subway or while you speed walk to work (well, maybe not those noodles). New Yorkers are nothing but darn fine multitaskers.
Eat and run, or sit in your pajamas and binge watch Netflix. Whether your day consists of a to-do list of epic proportions or the simple goal to get out of your bathrobe is no concern to these take out restaurants. They just want to feed you and feed you well. It is as simple (and as delicious) as that.
