Tasty Sandwiches near 50th Street & Bway

I work on 50th and Bway and have not really found any good deli/ bodega, sandwich shop that makes anything more creative than a cuban sandwich. Does anyone have any recommendations? I'm just looking for some creativitiy and variety.
I'm sick to death of Subway!

    1. My suggestions may be a bit out of the way, as I work much further west in Midtown, but I don't think you can beat Cafe Olé on 54th Street, right off 10th Ave. (It's tiny & I don't think they deliver though.)

      There's Say Cheese on 9th Ave between 45th & 46th, too.

      There's also Sandwich Planet on 9th Ave between 39th & 40th. Can't go wrong with them. And they definitely deliver.

        If delivery is what you want, there's also Blue Flowers, Food World, Wich Craft

          Second Sandwich Planet if delivery is an option.

        2. While it may not be super creative, one of the best bets for sandwiches around there is Amish Market- relatively inexpensive, nice good sized, high quality sandwiches, and the option to get other fun things like small desserts while there. 9th b/w 49th and 50th.

            I actually really enjoy Amish Market. The have a delish buffalo chicken sandwich.
            I'm definitely looking to broaden my lunch horizons as well.

              I strongly agree with this. I went here today for lunch and had a Chicken, Pesto, Mozzarella, and Artichoke sandwich on Crusty Bread. Really delicious, enormous, and $6.95.

            2. If you're willing to get delivery, you will broaden your horizons. Tehuitzingo can deliver a massive and satisfying Mexican torta. will have other recommendations.

                thanks! I'll check that out.

                Oh I see Sullivan Street Bakery is close by! cool map

              2. I'm not really looking for delivery options. While certainly an option, I like to walk around during lunch and get out of my dreary office and the horrible drones who work here!
