"Healthy" food around Radio City?

I'm going to a show at Radio City tonight & my friend & I would like to eat something a little on the healthier side, but nothing too expensive. I'm just having a brain fart as to what's around there.

Any suggestions?

I'd be down for salads, though anything a little more creative would be nice. It doesn't have to be like, crazy macrobiotic healthy though. Just something on the lighter side. Basically, we've just been doing too many burger & fries meals (not that there's anything wrong with that!).

  1. Freefoods NYC? It's only a few blocks away, a raw, organic, etc. and upscale deli. It's open until 8pm Mondays through Thursdays.

    1. Sugiyama has amazing Japanese. It's on 251 W 55th St Btwn Broadway & 8th Ave Ther have a 3 course for $32 from 5:30 to 6:3o & 9:00 to 10:30

      1. Azuri Cafe at 51st and 10th. It's a small Israeli place where you can get a platter of various salads (hummus, baba, israeli salad, tabouli etc...) and some falafel.

        Enjoy the decemberists

          Oh I know Azuri well... thanks for the reminder!

        2. hummus kitchen on 9th ave between 51st and 52nd has lots of healthy options but the falafel is definitely better at azuri. i'm going to the show tonight too. can't wait!

            falalfel is not healthy - its deep fried. neither is hummus, its all oil.
            not many nutrients in these foods.

            we're doing French before we see the Decemerists tonight.

          2. Radiance Tea House 55th between 6th and 7th. Steamed dumplings, miso soup, really delicious. Tea selection also outstanding.
