Sat lunch near Madison Square Park?
Any suggestions? We are going to a 3 pm concert in Madison Square Park (between 26th and 23rd/between 5th Ave and Madison) tomorrow. We will walk there from Penn Station. I don't know the area at all. We prefer very casual restaurants and love Japanese, Indian, Thai, Italian food. I guess we could always go to Chelsea, then walk over from there. Thanks in advance for your suggestions!
Not much to eat between Penn and MSP. Lots of good Indian in Curry Hill...Lexington Ave around 28th St. There's also a Japanese place, East, on 3rd Ave. between 26th & 27th st.
Le Zie, on 7th Avenue between 20th and 21st, is a great neighborhood Italian. I also really like Markt, a Belgian place on 6th and 21st. For a great place to pick up sandwiches and salads to bring to the park (in lieu of a 45+ minute wait at Shake Shack), go to Blue Dog Cafe on W. 25th between 6th and 7th (closer to 6th).
