Office moved to 47th and Park - need good "everyday" lunch options!

LBNJNY Nov 11, 2011 07:22 AM

Our office recently relocated from Murray Hill to 47th and Park. I am in need of good lunch options! I already found Le Pain Quotidien around 50th and Third which is a fave. Some requests:

1. Best create your own salad bar
2. Best inexpensive but still good sushi
3. Any good spicy options - Indian, Thai, etc.
4. Best slice of pizza
5. Any french bistro bar seating (neighborhood type place)

Any other suggestions you have are welcome!

Thank you!

    Have you checked out Midtownlunch.com yet?

    What's your lunch budget?

    These may help:

      Thank you! I mix it up - sometimes a takeout for $10 and other times a sit down for $25. I have great info for my client lunches, so this is more when I am solo or with friends. Great info - thanks again!

      Minar for Indian, especially dosas. 138 W. 46th St.

      Bonchon for spicy Korean fried chicken, 51st St. and 2nd Ave.

      There's also a Grand Sichuan on 2nd Ave. and 55th St., though that might be outside your radius.

        Walk north 2-3 blocks and there are fantastic food trucks there.

          The section between Lex and 3rd on 47th has many good Japanese options.
          My choice for a sit down place there would be Tsushima, with some great lunch sets.

          I'd love to read answers from the 'hounds to LB's query about a "create your own salad bar" (anathema in these parts, I know -sorry) for this neighbourhood.
          My favourite place, on the corner of Third and 51st, closed recently and I really, really need a replacement.
