Lunch tomorrow around 5th and 45th?
I have a 1:30pm appaointment tomorrow around 5th and 45th. Is there anyplace nearby for a late lunch, say around 3:00? Not very picky, just know I will be hungry!
Branzini, on the corner of Madison & 41st St., is a casual trattoria-style restaurant that serves Italian/Mediterranean cuisine. The menu includes things like salads and paninis, as well as more substantial fare. It's been quite a while since we had lunch there, but their version of the eponymous fish is one of the best I've had. They are open throughout the afternoon.
Inside the Pan Am Building is Naples 45 at 45th Street and Vanderbilt. They sell their pizza by the slice. And underneath Grand Central is a food cort.
For more upscale, go to Ammos on Vanderbilt and 45th. Great (upscale...not authentic) Greek. Thier grilled cheese sahndwich with fries is great.
Try the Argentine Pavillion on 46th (or maybe 45th) between 5th & 6th. Great fish and their Parrillada (mixed grill) is wonderful, though I ask for it without the kidneys...unless i bring my cat along.
