Best workday lunch near Varick and Spring

bododavid Jul 26, 2009 10:27 PM

I was hoping for some suggestions about where to grab a quick lunch (on a lunch break) near Varick and Spring street. I've tried Grandaisy Bakery and Snack, but I am always looking to try new places would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks in advance.

      I am super bored of Mooncake after eating the steak plate everyday for 3 months. I have yet to go back in the past 4 months. Where is Deb's Catering?

      Here's my heavy rotation:

      Aquagrill - salmon BLT or shrimp avocado sandwich
      Koo Japanese Fusion

      Less heavy rotation:
      Pepe Russo
      Rheon Cafe (great baked goods and salads)
      Sunrise Mart

      I can't recommend Alidoro b/c of their attitude and I can't rec Hiroko b/c of their food.

          Once Upon a Tart
          Aquagrill (no delivery, pickup only) for their sandwiches, or business lunch
          Calexico cart on Wooster (bit of a walk & long lines)
          Cubana Cafe (great apple jicama salad)

            I second Deb's Catering. There is a Korean truck on Hudson and King (on Thursdays only). Getting Hungry Deli on Varick and West Houston.
