The Financial District isn’t exactly known as Manhattan’s culinary hot spot.But Wall Streeters have to eat somewhere.
Our friends at Seamless helped us figure out which FiDi eateries are most popular for folks ordering from corporate accounts during dinner hours, as well as the most common orders.
It turns out that the country’s financial whiz kids are partial to Italian food, sushi, and salad.
Seamless found that healthier orders like salads and sandwiches were more popular early in the week, and that by the weekend, corporate orders weighed heavily towards comfort foods like pizza.
Industries also have personal preferences, according to Seamless, which found that investment bankers order more sushi and hedge funds order more deli food.

'Ordered shrimp stuffed with crabmeat w/baked potato and butter instead of rice. I had called and learned that the vegetable of the day was string beans w/carrots. When my order arrived, the plate had been set up with rice; the mistake apparently was caught as MOST of the rice had been scrapped out and a cold potato placed in its place. No veggies were included.
While the shrimp was good, I wouldn't order again since the staff could not care enough to entirely clean the rice out of the plate or better still use a CLEAN plate.' -- Seamless reviewer
