Have you ever imagined getting a free, gourmet lunch everyday in your office? Well, I lived that dream for 16 months at a little search engine company that doesn’t hold back when it comes to feeding their employees. Those days may be over for now, but I’m still on the lookout for good bargains around the city. One of my first lazy afternoon outings may have discovered the best weekday lunching deal in New York: Motorino. For twelve dollars (about the same price for a mediocre sandwich in Midtown) you can feast on a delicious Neapolitan pie AND a fresh salad doused in tasty balsamic vinegar dressing. I went for the Soppressata Picante with a perfectly charred crust that was covered with a large handful of thinly sliced salami, fresh garlic, and plenty of mozzarella, but diners can also choose the Brussels Sprout, Marinara, or Margherita pizzas. As an added bonus, the deal is good from 12 pm to 4 pm, so you can eat European-style in the mid-afternoon, lingering for a few hours over a glass of wine or cold beer still keeping the tab under $20.
