Quick, Cheap Lunches in SoHo

StephInNYC Apr 15, 2010 09:01 AM

I just started working at a new office in SoHO and have no idea what to eat for lunch.

What are some good, quick, take-out lunch places in this hood ($10 and under). I want to get away from the standard Midtown-ish lunch joints.

      Olives is a little on the higher end but everything is fresh and delicious.

        Definitely recommend Crosby Connection on Bleecker just East of Lafayette, hidden inside a theater (whose name escapes me at the moment). It's right in the front/lobby area, so it's not awkward when you walk in. They have a nice seating area, too. They have fabulous, fresh, delicious large sandwiches. The menu isn't too large, but everything I've had is great. The bread is super fresh, and they have whole wheat available! (bonus points on that one) I love the turkey-brie-pear sandwich they have, and they're always happy to custom make any sandwich. The meatball sandwich is also awesome, with a little bit of a sweet tinge to the red sauce. They can make any sandwich a salad for the same price. The sandwiches are all $7, a steal at how big they are (pretty comparable to a subway footlong but WAY better).

        284 Mulberry St, New York, NY 10012

          Bleecker Street Theater Company is the theatre. The sandwich shop is literally a counter in the lobby. It's more like a coffee shop atmosphere.

            Banh Mi Saigon Bakery
            Once Upon a Tart
            Village Tart

            Also checkout the ladies who write lunchstudio.blogspot.com since they go out for lunch frequently and are always looking for places near their Soho studio. Oh, and there's also the "Lunch for one" column on Serious Eats, the writer goes to Soho pretty often.

              This is a good list. I would also recommend the newly opened Project Sandwich on Thompson (Prince/Spring) and Numero 28, a vastly underrated pizza place on Spring (Sullivan/Thompson).
