Seamless Web Midtown - What are your favorites?

I am working midtown, and I am curious to hear from other office slaves about their favorite places to eat. I like using seamless, but I am open to using the telephone to order food occasionally too!

I know that some of the restaurants have been addressed on an old thread located here, , but I am wondering if there any other new gems on the line up that I should try. I know that Savannah Steak and Wu Kong are off the list now. I get tired of having mediocre food from seamless!

So, here is the challenge: What are your favorites seamless restaurants? I need suggestions and alternatives for the ones below! And folks, even if you agree with other posters, please try to keep repetition to a minimum, and list your second and third favorites!

Feel free to throw in restaurants that don't use seamless too, if you think they are gems and they deliver!

My favorites so far:
Hatsuhana (Japanese) [Too expensive for regular ordering though
]The Pump (Breakfast) [Cheap and fast, but sorta plain]
Wu Liang Ye (Chinese) [Good prices, shrimp are huge, cheap lunch specials]
Red Lantern (Thai) [Great Curry]
Wild Edibles
Peking Duck House

  1. Twin onion roll sandwich from Junior's
    Amish market east- The best Create your own salad bar in NYC.
    Ali baba- pretty good Turkish restaurant
    Blake and Todd - Really good deli sandwich. Their bread(baguette) is owesome and so is their entree
    Jackson Hole - Hamburger
    Teleon cafe- good quality deli, etc
    Ess-a-bagel- bagel sandwich with seafood salad and I order a half dozen for home

    I like Hale and Hearthy soup and sandwich but they are always late so I don't usually order from them.

    1. Josie's tuna burger, salads, unfried rice and apple pie are all good
      Mangia for the most ridiculously quick non-chinese delivery
      Spoons has the usual deli picks, as well as a large korean food section. Love how you can randomly add a fried egg to any entree and even if the food is inconsistent, I know I can fall back on lemon bundt cake =)

      1. Josie's
        Grand Sichuan
        Organic Harvest

        I tend to order a lot of Hatsuhana personally.

        It is a sad state of affairs on SW.

          1. re: jeannious

            I'll second Akdeniz. It has a pretty good hunkar begendi (I think they call it either Sultan's Delight or just smoked eggplant puree on the menu), though it a tad too floury, and decent meatballs.

          2. I've said it before and I'll say it again...Bread and Olive on 45th between 5th and 6th. Deeeelicious Lebanese food!
