We’ve been spending a little more time in the Financial District for lunch lately, and ran across Sunrise Grill by Wall & Water St last week. The guy on line in front of me said they usually park by 125 Broad St, but someone important was in town (Prez?) and that block was closed for the day.
We first saw Sunrise Grill at last year’s Taste of the Parks event, where the NYC Parks Dept introduced the public to some of the new vendors given contracts to serve in various city parks. Unfortunately, they ran out of food early that day, but we did get a chance to try their food at the 2011 Vendy Awards, where they were Rookie of the Year nominees.
The guy in front of me seemed like a regular, so we asked him what he recommended. If we like spicy food, he said the jerk chicken. The only remaining issue then was small, medium or large for $8, $10 or $12. We went for medium.
