  1. Spice Market is just plain terrible and not at all worth the cost of entry.

    Locanda Verde is a good brunch, and the breads and sweets are top notch.

    I would do Katz's over Carnegie if you want pastrami

    1. Why Spice Market? Any particular reason?

      I'd do Katz's for pastrami, and drop Lombardi's for John's of Bleecker or Motorino or Patsy's in East Harlem.

      LV, Keens, ABC are all good choices I'd say.

      1. Agree with others: your lunch choices are not good. Spice Market? Why? Is it for Jean Georges, or MeatPacking or Asian? There are better options on all three counts.

        Carnegie? Nope. Go to Sarges or Katz.

        Lombardi' s - Eh. Artichoke, Keste better. Even Otto.

        Others are great.

        1. re: thegforceny

          Need a lunch location in Meat Packing district, open to suggestions.

          Looking for a great pizza joint and I thought Lombardi's was it, I guess I'm wrong. I'm going to be in the Soho area that day, any recommendations around there?

          Actually I will go to Katz's the day I am in Soho area and now I will need an excellent pizza joint in the 54th and 6th Ave area.

          1. re: katbri

            Is this for weekday lunch or weekend lunch?

            For pizza near Soho, maybe L'Asso or Arturo's (but my last Arturo's pie wasn't that great).

            Katz's is not really super close to Soho but definitely worth a stop.

            If you're near 54th and 6th, I wouldn't get pizza in that neighborhood. Personally, I would try the halal cart nearby or go to the Bar Room at the Modern.

              For pizza near Soho, try Rubirosa. It is fabulous. At lunch you have the choice of ordering by the slice in addition to 2 sizes of pies.

                Don't go to Spice Market. The food is not great.
