Before food trucks and Seamless, there were nickel-operated, grub-dispensing automats and Haim's Quick Lunch Restaurant. Learn about the evolution of New York's midday meal at this culinary exhibit charting the rise of New York traditions like the hot dog stand and the power lunch. Check out photographs, once-secret recipes and menus from landmarks like Delmonico's and Sardi's, as well as a restored chrome-and-glass automat machine.
