So where can you go in the financial district to get an amazing breakfast or lunch? The Milk Street Cafe at 40 Wall Street in the Trump Building. Ok, so I know what you're thinking - why is it called Milk Street Cafe if its on Wall St? The original location of the cafe is on Milk Street in Boston. The new location, a 22,000 square foot space in lower Manhattan had its grand opening last week. The cafe will cater to many specific dietary needs including kosher, vegetarian and gluten-free. In addition to a sushi station, with fish delivered fresh every morning, Milk St. also has an amazing salad bar. It starts with an industrial sized salad wash station and spinner that cleans lettuce of any pesticides and dirt particles. Of course, Milk St. Cafe also has great coffee and baked goods.
Perhaps more important than having another eatery, however, is the fact that Milk St. Cafe will bring 120 jobs to lower Manhattan, and area that is still reeling from the impact of 9/11 and the recession. The store employs chefs, bakers, catering managers, pastry chefs and many more support staff.
