If you went by Noon Midtown looking for a nibble on Monday or Tuesday of this week, not only were you out of luck, but you also had to dodge flying glass.
Well, fake flying glass.
The breakfast and lunch spot at 1050 Crescent Ave. shut down for a couple of days so that “The Vampire Diaries” could film some scenes there with Ian Somerhalder, who plays the dastardly Damon Salvatore.
You’ll have to watch the show, which airs at 8 p.m. Thursdays on The CW channel, to find out what was going on, but it sounds like there was plenty of action. The crew removed the shop’s glass window and hurled bits of fake glass, to simulate a shattering window. (No humans or vampires were harmed during the shooting of this show, we are assured).
Now that things are back to normal, Noon is busy with its catering program, where customers can earn Natural Body Spa gift certificates, and will be rolling out some new fall menu items.
We’re trying to get them to consider our brilliant idea for a marketing campaign: “Noon Midtown: A Great Place for a Bite.” Get it?
