A lunch spot in Midtown that isn't a chain with UNIQUE sandwiches? Pinch me.
I don't always get tuna sandwiches, but when I do-I get it with Mediterranean pickles, corn, chopped carrots, mayo, fresh greens and tomatoes.
Most interesting sandwich in the world (aka the crunchy tuna sandwich!)
Also had a stellar Arnold Palmer (referred to as 50-50 here).
Only a few tables inside and it gets packed around lunchtime, definitely recommend taking the sammy to-go.
Why bother going to Subway and Quiznos when you can go to City Sandwich! Great lunch option in the midtown hour with lots of healthy and original sandwich choices.
I had the Todd (smoked portuguese pancetta, seasonal lettuce, tomato and honey dijon yogurt sauce). It was sooo delicious. You can tell everything is fresh. The pancetta was salty and juicy, without being too overwhelming. The yogurt sauce was just right!
Sandwich is about $10. Not cheap, but the quality and size of the sandwich permit the price.
I've gotten delivery from here and it never disappoints. Granted, it's usually a plain pie but it's always just right.
I had some extra time during lunch so I decided to check out the full scope of pizza options. I got a buffalo slice and Sicilian slice. The Sicilian was good but the buffalo slice was seriously lacking. There was hardly any chicken on it and it was mostly buffalo sauce, barely any blue cheese.
A good choice for takeout but if you're looking for specialty pizza, I'd go elsewhere.
Love this place for a fast, easy, but still delicious lunch.
Pret is technically a chain but their food is always fresh. They have a lot of healthy options including sandwiches and salads.
My favorite is the Cheddar, Avocado with Spinach & Kale sandwich.
Not super cheap, but won't break the bank. A great lunch option for the Midtown area.
Stopped by during lunch for a bite to eat. The menu is basically bar food with an Australian twist. I opted for the The Australian Burger (their signature burger-homemade seasoned ground beef with egg, bacon, onions & a choice of cheese served with beet and pineapple slices on the side). I definitely enjoyed the eggs but the pineapples and beats were just not my thing.
Also, I think the majority of employees there are Australian! There's nothing that doesn't sound a million times better with an Aussie accent :)
Picture it: midtown, 12:30, lunchtime. There is an abundance of low-quality chain restaurants and monotonous, overpriced buffets. Enter: Untamed sandwiches.
At 12:30, as expected, the place was PACKED. The line circled the perimeter of the restaurant. Everyone who worked there was super nice and patient though. This is not your typical sandwich joint. Their specialty is braised meats of all kinds-chicken, pork, goat, etc.
Being a fan of goat cheese and having heard about the chupacabra for the past month on a television show, I immediately knew I wanted the Chupacabra (braised goat, chermoula carrots, whipped goat cheese, kohlrabi slaw, and red onion). I waited about 15 minutes online and then 15 minutes again for my sandwich. It was totally worth every second of waiting.
The sandwich, although expensive at $14, was ginormous-easily split between 2 people or 2 meals. The goat was so tender. For those of you afraid of goat meat, don't be. It is delicious. Even the rustic bread was a perfect fit on this sandwich.
Actually a pretty great sushi spot in the midtown area. Normally, sushi places near penn station are terrible. They are generally old, dirty, and lack fresh fish.
Not Asura. I walked in to a modern, clean sushi spot.
I ordered a lunch special-miso soup and 3 rolls for $12. They offered a mix of basic rolls and rolls that were amped up a notch. I had a spicy tuna roll, a crunchy shrimp roll, and a salmon avocado roll. All fresh and tasty. They were the usual size...6 small pieces. But still, 3 rolls plus soup for $12 is a steal.
I would defintely try out some other lunch specials next time...such as the bento box.
Lena Latin Grill is Chipotle's slightly fancier sister.
Same idea: pick your style, protein, sauce, sides. They have a ton of more unique options than Chipotle, however.
Today I chose: a plate with grilled chicken, cilantro rice, grilled corn & queso, and pico de gallo. I would say it's less filling than Chipotle, but I like that you can make it pretty healthy but still flavorful.
Presentation was boring. A slab of chicken in one container, and the sides in smaller containers. It looked very plain until you mix them all up like they do at Chipotle.
I got it to go and I only waited a few minutes during peak rush hour time. They do have some tables, but they were all full when I was there.
