NYPL Lunch Hour Exhibit

Lunch hour is a daily necessity for most, a well-deserved break for others, and something well spent outside in Bryant Park if you're lucky. Now The New York Public Library has immortalized this daily ritual with their new exhibit Lunch Hour NYC. To grab some attention for the display inside the building, as well as write some modern day history while reflecting on the past, the folks at NYPL have teamed up with The New York City Food Truck Association to host some of the best food truck options around.

The best on wheels will be parking their operation right in front of the Library on the terrace closest to 5th Avenue and 40th Street. Five different food trucks are participating on a rotating basis, so you're guaranteed to enjoy a variety of mobile options without leaving the neighborhood. Here's the schedule for your lunch planning pleasure. Just remember, trucks are open 11am - 3pm through Labor Day, and food is available while supplies last.

Monday: Mexicue 
Down-home barbeque meets spicy Mexican food

Tuesday: Milk Truck 
Gourmet grilled cheese

Wednesday: Red Hook Lobster Pound
The best lobster roll in NYC

Thursday: Rickshaw Dumplings 
Inventive, fresh dumplings

Friday: Eddie’s Pizza 
A New York classic gone mobile

After grabbing a bite, don't forget to check out Lunch Hour NYC inside the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building. The exhibit explores every facet of the New York City midday meal including the evolution of the 'power lunch', the history of the Automat, school lunches, displays of menus, quintessential NYC eating destinations and more. The exhibit is free and open through February 17, 2013.
