Not long after the happy news that Cambodian-sandwich shop Num Pang would expand to midtown, opening week is upon us: Reps tell us the restaurant is aiming to open the doors this Thursday or Friday. The graffiti-decked shop is as diminutive as the Greenwich Village location, with counter ordering and no seats though you can decamp to Grand Central Plaza just down the block. Word is the menu will have some rotating sandwich additions, along with salads and a yogurt option for those with mayo-phobia. The biggest change: You can use plastic! Unlike downtown, you can pay with a card here. Hours are 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday, and noon to 9 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
