Lunch near Waldorf

Looking for recommendations for a casual, not too exepensive ($10-$15 per person) lunch near the Waldorf. Would prefer middle eastern/falafel, but open to anything as long as it is good. Suggestions?

Thank you in advance.

  1. Does your $10 to $15 include tax (20%) and tip (9%)?

        So on top of this you will have beverages, apps, dessert, tax, tip....

        I like Taksim, a Turkish place on 2nd Ave near 54th.

        1030 2nd Ave, New York, NY 10022

          That is correct. I should have been more clear - my apologies.

    1. Nirvana is close on Lexington - great Indian food.

      1. Amazingly enough, the place across the street from Waldorf inside the St. Barts church serves the most amazing falafel sandwich...they are open for lunch. On a warm day you should sit outside on their terrrace...
