Help - My office moved to 35th and 8th!
Unfortunately my company recently moved from beautiful DUMBO Brooklyn to the soul crushing Penn Station area. Are thought on where I can get some decent lunch food??? Thanks!
Make sure to bookmark www.seamlessweb.com on your computer, if you haven't done so already. Here are some recs that deliver to you:
NY Pizza Suprema
Lazzara's Pizza Cafe
Tulcingo del Valle
Nods to a few mentioned above:
NY Pizza Suprema (8th and 31st) is a cut above for NY pizza
Skylight Diner (34th and 9th) is also a cut above the usual diner far.
Szechuan Gourmet (39th bet. 5th & 6th) is excellent, though pricier than the usual lunch spot
Hill Country (26th bet.. 5th & 6th) is great, but a little far away and expensive for lunch
Uncle Nick's (29th & 8th) is also more of a real restaurant than a place for a workday lunch.
Others, not mentioned here on in kelea's thread but worth a try:
Home on 8th (8th between 29th & 30th) has decent Chinese food and lunch specials.
SooKram Thai (8th between 26th & 27th) is also good.
Osaka (8th @ 35th?) -- Japanese, gets mixed reviews, but probably good for a tray of take-out rolls
Noodles on 35th (35th St. just west of 8th) -- a cheap chinese take out kind of place, but good for cheap noodles and simple Chinese dishes.
There are also a pair of Thai places on 36th or 37th Streets, just east of 8th, that I've never tried, and a number of Latin places on the side streets as well. Those could be an adventure. Fortunately, there's this: http://midtownlunch.com/

I'll ditto Lazzara's (though the last time I ate there it wasn't as good as I remembered), Go Go Curry as a cheap and unhealthy option, and there used to be an amazing salad, sandwich, soup and noodles cooked to order place - Amici 36 - that place was a godsend. Plus they have lots of great snacks and treats.
I haven't been to Djerdan (turkish place right underneath Lazarra's) in a really long time, but it was decent, if slow food.
Mooncake is a must!
Pizzeria Suprema is SO good. The other place across the street (east side of 8th btw 30 and 31) is also good - less crispy crust - but the sauce at Suprema is to die for!
Lugo Caffe -- never been for lunch, but great for post work drinks.
Brown Cow further down 8th has great healthy options.
Ayza is a chocolate cafe and wine bar on 31st near 5th - yum!
Of course, there is Whole Foods on 24th and 7th for takeaway...
