New office at 34th and 5th - Lunch Options?

Hi 'hounds -

I just moved into a new office in the Empire State Building. The neighborhood seems to be a bit of a culinary wasteland, populated with an overabundance of Cafe Metro's, Europa's and fast food.

I am familiar with the Koreatown options - fantastic once a week or so, but where do I eat the rest of the week? Would love some suggestions! Looking for a reliable sushi delivery place, a few good/clean deli's for salads and sandwiches. Also, anything chowish and notable (street vendors, etc) would be great to know.

One place on my list (though a few avenues away) is Go Go Curry. Please help me out!

Thanks!
