Flatiron Lunch

Looking for a nice recommendation for a light weekday lunch in the Flatiron district, something along the lines of The Smith or Jane.

      I love the Breslin, but it's not so light. Anything else? Thanks!

    2. Tavern Room at Gramercy Tavern? They typically have a 1/2 sandwich and soup deal. I believe it's $14.

      Another option is to walk east to 'inoteca's Gramercy location and have a panini.

        Thanks! That helps. I am going to be in the area with my parents and Shake Shack might be out b/c of the rain, and so I just need an option. Is Wichcraft good?

          How about Craftbar - it's good for a light lunch.

            I like 'Wichcraft but it's not really a table service restaurant, more like an upscale take-out joint. The food is good but pricey and portions tend to be small but high quality.

        2. maybe a voce madison? it's italian so maybe not as light as it gets but still the food is pretty good and the prices aren't bad.

          1. Maybe Resto

            1. The food at Punch is quite good, but what drives me crazy is they charge for iced tea refills (and the glasses aren't big to begin with). So now I simply drink water there.
