Potbelly and IHOP Coming to NYC!
If you didn’t go to college in the Midwest as some of us Magpies did, then chances are you’ve never heard of a sandwich shop called Potbelly. But soon, we promise, you’ll get a chance to experience a T-K-Y (turkey and melted swiss on thin cut bread) and never look back. This Chicago-based sandwich shop is opening three NYC locations – 2 Gold Street in the Financial District; Rockefeller Center; and 44th Street between 3rd and Lexington Avenues. We’re always looking for a place to get a good sandwich - and now we’ll be able to get one and think of our college days in every bite! We can almost taste it now. Oh, and just for the record, Potbelly is named for the type of stove used to make the sandwich, not what you look like after you’ve eaten there!
Which brings us to some other fab food news…IHOP will be setting up shop in NYC! Yup, the International House of Pancakes, home of our favorite flavored pancakes, is set to open soon on East 14th Street between Second and Third Avenues in the East Village. Who doesn’t love a stack of cinnastack pancakes (cinnamon pancakes topped with cream cheese icing) every once in a while? Well, we know we do! So Magpies, we’ll definitely be hopping over to our gym to avoid getting a potbelly from these two yummy additions in NYC!
