New Job - whats to eat at 38th St. and 6th Ave?

  • j

Well, the subject pretty much says it. I got a new job and I am moving away from my current nabe (murray hill area) Except for Keens on 36th and 6th and Virgils on 44th I am unfamiliar with that neck of the woods. My new employer took me to lunch at Heartland (base of Empire State Bldg) but that place just doesn't float my boat

Need all kinds of recommends for solo lunches and for client lunches, even dinner although I will usually go to one of my fav's for dinner without worrying about being local. But lunch you gotta be local; mostly, my current employer used to get royally p*ssed when I took the long lunch at Katz's

Please tell me where I can get a decent sandwich, that's something that I have not found here in Murray Hill

When I moved to Murray Hill all the chowhounders helped me out so I hope you can again,

by the way thanks for Copper Chimney, Turkish Kitchen, I trulli, La Petite Auberge all places I went to cause of Chowhound. (Blue Smoke, Park Bistro and Molly's I already knew about ;-)

    If you are into Korean food, you are in the right neighboorhood. If you like buffets... even better.

    Arang is on 32nd btw Broadway and 5th


    1. 'wichcraft kiosks in Bryant Park
      the Sichuan restaurant (drawing a blank on the name right now) on 38th btwn 5th and 6th for pretty good spicy chinese
      Zaytinz on 40th btwn 5th and 6th for a decent upscale deli type place.
      Yum Thai on 44th btwn 6th and 7th for good, greasy thai (number 14 is the best there)

      1. My office is in the exact same area and I am sorry to report that there is not a lot other than some pizza and run of the mill delis. Szechuan Gourmet on 39th between 5th and 6th is very good, especially if you like very spicy chinese food.

        1. Mandoo on 32nd between 5th and 6th; Korean, great dumplings, sit down or take out, and I always felt comfortable sitting alone for lunch there when I worked in the area.

          1. There's a starwich at 38th & 6th, so that might fulfill your sandwich needs.
