Nem - a Vietnamese sandwich stand - had a nice grilled sirloin sandwich served in baguette-like bread, with a very thin layer of liver pate, cilantro and some vegetables. The bread was somewhat dry, probably because it was late in the day, but I guess that shouldn't be an excuse. (about $6/sandwich)

Two Boots - yet another branch of this chain - you know the drill - above average slices at just above average prices with some interesting topping combinations. (about $3.25/slice)

    And just in case anyone is tempted to try Christer's-- don't. Oily, uncrisp, not-fresh fish with lousy, soggy decidedly un-British chips. They're even skimpy with the malt vinegar.

      Is there anything on the Dining Concourse that can beat Zocalo? So far they're far and away my fave for nights when I work late and have dinner on the train (Two Boots is good, but not as good as having it fresh and more of a challenge to eat on Metro-North). The chips and guacamole are always fresh; the wraps are above-average, as is the BBQ sandwich; and the frozen margaritas have the right amount of booze in them and last almost to Tarrytown.

        I also like Zocalo. It is a great place to meet friends after work for a drink, especially if they train out to the burbs. They have a good selection of Mexican beers, not just Coronas, and their margaritas are pretty good.
