Any weekday lunch good eats near 51st and 11th?

Just starting a job on 51st between 11th and 12th tomorrow and was wondering if there are any good lunch places in the very near area. I only get 30 minutes for lunch, so it will have to be pretty quick, and I'd also prefer to spend less rather than more. Any recommendations would be much appreciated. Also, if there's a great place that is in the area but is more of a sit down place, I'd still like to hear it as I'd always be willing to have dinner in the area after work. Thanks!

      Wouldn't have enough time to get down to Daisy May's, but you can bet that I'll be going there after work. I'll definitely have to check out Taboon.
