New Job in Times Sq -- Seeking good lunch options

Like most native NYers, I've spent most of my life avoiding Times Sq. and passing through only to switch trains or catch the occasional broadway show. Now, thanks to a new job, I find myself coming here every day for work. So I'm soliciting help from fellow chowhounds who know the area -- what are my best lunch options (dinner too, since I work late a lot)?

To narrow things down a bit, I'm generally looking for the quick/cheap/takeout kind of lunch, but a notch or two above pizza or fast food. I'm also interested in hearing about more upscale/sit-down places that are good for those days when a more leisurely lunch is in order.

Places in the area between 39th and 46th from 5th ave to 9th ave. are most convenient. Thanks in advance for your tips!
