So instead of the relaxing sit-down lunch I thought I'd have at Cafe Boulud (sorry, sp?), I now will have to travel directly from my appt. in the city to CT and then back home. Looking therefore for something I can pick up and (relatively) safely drive with - neat wrap/sandwich type thing that's somewhat healthy and delicious. Price is not an issue since there will be a lot of schlepping around! :-) Any thoughts for portable food in the area? I will be very pressed for time and heading to the Henry Hudson from there so I need it to be in the general vicinity of the 70's - Thanks!

    Grandaisy Bakery has nice sandwiches or you could get a good slice. That's at 72 and Bdwy. Levain Bakery also has some sandwiches -- that's at 74 and Amsterdam.

      Agreed. And add Jacques Torres Chocolates to your list (Amsterdam, between 73rd and 74th.

      You could collect delicious lunch and sweets visiting those three places. You could even grab a quick hot dog at Grey's Papaya.
