Lunch near Van Ness & Market?

What's good for a weekday solo lunch within walking distance of Market & Van Ness? Zuni's a bit much for me take on, at least today, but looking for something better than a Downtown feeding trough. Thanks. .

        I hate to have to type this, but Quincy's is closed.

      3. I thought Canto do Brasil was pretty good for the money. They have lunch specials in the $6-9 range every weekday.

        1. Arlequin Cafe right next to Absinthe is a really good lunch place.

          1. It's not at all like Quincy's was, but there's an incredible new sandwich place on the corner of Polk and Market called Lunch Geek. Acme bread, locally sourced meats and veggies, housemade sauces and very inventive combinations. There's a regular menu and specials that change every day called "Kitchen Experiments."
