The World Financial Center had three separate lunchtime culinary events on Thursday.
From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., the EAT World Financial Center Restaurant showcased more than a dozen of the building’s eateries in the Winter Garden, each selling tastes of their signature dishes for $5 or less.
The Grill Room offered a shrimp and vegetable stir-fry for $5, SouthWest NY will dish out pulled-pork sliders, two for $5, and Devon & Blakely sold a blackened chicken sandwich for $4. For dessert, Financier Patisserie offered a black and white mousse cake for $3, while Godiva Chocolatier will sell two chocolate-dipped strawberries for $5.

This year, Ed’s will bring back its $15 lobster roll, $6 grilled shrimp skewers and $2 grilled corn on the cob, while Quality Burger will offer freshly seared cheeseburgers for $5.25 and loaded-up chilidogs for $3.75.
