      I am a big fan of the Hot Table and Salad bar at Civic Deli down near Foley Square. The steam table has a huge selection of options and the place is spotless.

        Second Organique...Great ingredients and quality
        Pita Grill - Chicken rice bowl is excellent and an unexpected surprise

      2. Manna's in Harlem, not quite a favorite, but I visit when up that way. I like that they offer soul food options that actually decently prepared. They are a tad pricey as soul food can be heavy, but I do prefer it over other salad bars that offer the same things all the time.

        1. Pax has many locations and I find that their ingredients are always fresh. You can get a great salad, made to order according to your tastes and not too expensive. Their soups and sandwiches are also excellent.

          1. I get salads (and soups) regularly at Hale & Hearty. Many locations, but I use the one across from Citicorp and also at 65th & Lex. the most often.

            1. For salad bars I like Oscars at the Waldorf-Why? it makes me feel special.
              for sit down as well as take out salad bars I love Tomato on 52nd between Lex and 3rd south side-why? everything is fresh with tons of choices. Also sells sushi and udon noodle soup as well as deli counter. Its your quintessential Korean deli but very good-I make it a weekly habit.
