This little counter in the Time Warner Center is only open for breakfast and lunch every day, and the menu has around six options, most of which are flatbread-based. There are wraps with yakitori chicken or spicy pork cut from a spit, breakfast sandwiches with smoked salmon from Zabar’s, mortadella, or cream cheese and vegetables, and a couple of dips. If you work or live anywhere within subway-able distance of Bāng Bar, definitely stop by lunch or breakfast.
