Lunch near 62/Lex

Help, 'hounds ... I just started working near 62nd and Lexington and am looking for lunch recs. I've tried (and liked) Pain Quotidien and davidburke in the box, also Fig & Olive although I'm usually looking for quick takeout. Any ideas? Thanks for your help.

  1. There's a Hale & Hearty at about 64th ... soups & sandwiches geared for the takeout crowd...

    1. There is a Burger Heaven on 62nd & Lexington. Their sandwiches and salads are pretty good.

      1. California Pizza Kitchen at 3rd & 60th has good salads and does take out, or you can sit at the counter.

        1. when i worked around there i'd frequent Eat Here Now. It's a pretty typical diner but they have some great cheap basics--egg sandwiches, burgers, etc-- not stellar, but pretty good.

          i think there is a Japanese grocery on 59th b/w 2nd & 3rd, they usually have some good snacks.

          1. Equinox gym at 63rd & Lex has a good cafe
