Herald Square Options

Hello all: What are the lunch options in the Herald Square vicinity (other than Korean, which is all I've been having here for days). Surely there's something better than a PAX salad round these parts?


P.S. I know about Dimple. It's fabulous. Is there anywhere else to consider?

  1. Keens, on 36th St., b/t 5th & 6th Avs. The Pub Room is less expensive than the main dining room.

    Biricchino, an Italian restaurant, on 29th St., just east of 8th Av.

    They also own Salumeria Biellese, around the corner on 8th, known for their excellent homemade sausages which are served in the restaurant. I believe they sell sandwiches. Not sure if it's eat-in or exclusively take-out.

    Seven, on 7th Av., b/t 29th & 30th Sts. New American cuisine.

    Burgers & Cupcakes, on 9th Av., near 36th St. Mitchell London's new "concept."

      1. Also, right across the street, on 35th St, next to ChoDangGol and HanBat is a Korean-style Chinese restaurant. (Sorry, I always forget the name, but it's right there.) I especially recommend the champong (hot, spicy seafood noodle soup) and the jajangmyun (noodles in brown sauce), but they offer good versions of regular Chinese food staples at good lunch deal prices.

          hyo dong gak is the name of the chinese place.

          i've been wanting to try Lazarra's on 38th btw 7th and 8th ave. they look like they have some interesting pizza options and are well regarded on this board:
