      on that link,Cube 63 & Miriam are no longer open on Court.
      Bien Cuit on Smith is great for breakfast/light lunch and not that far. Chop Chop has a decent lunch bar right next to Bien Cuit. Damascus & Sahadi on Atlantic have good light lunch options if you like Middle Eastern food.
      Otherwise, just walk south on Smith or Court Streets--there are lots of restaurants.

    2. Fascati Best pizza by the slice in the area. Also Govinda's Lunch Club Hare Krishna Temple - 305 Schermerhorn Street. Atlantic and court street have a bunch of places. Mile end is close enough.

          OP should be aware that Lucali is not open for lunch, only dinner. Also, not quick as there is a long wait.

        2. The restaurant in the Marriott is fine for breakfast. For a quick lunch I noted that a Hanco's (Americanized, but good Banh Mi) was open on Montague St. Also Jack the Horse Tavern a few blocks away on Hicks St is worth a visit. And there is Theresa's: decent Polish food and soups also on Montague St. They serve a good breakfast as well.

            Junior's also has a nice breakfast!!!

            1. re: Motosport

              and Junior's for a late night dessert. Try the strawberry cheese pie and mile high sundae!!!
              Can you tell that I like Junior's??

            2. re: bobjbkln

              I think Jack the Horse is not open for lunch. (At least, it didn't used to be.)

            3. If you exit the Marriott and continue north, crossing the small park which contains the Supreme Court building and Borough Hall, you will come to Montegue Street. It is mostly a wasteland, but very close to the Marriott is Garden of Eden, a gourmet grocery with excellent sandwiches and salad bar. Also, further down Montegue is Heights Cafe which is reliable, if somewhat unexciting. Don't forget to walk the the end of Montegue Street for the famous Promenade and awesome view of the lights of Manhatten and the Statute of Liberty.

                I work in the area and recently discovered Oh My Pasta, definitely a cut above the more mundane restaurants along Montague. They specialize in house-made pasta and while it is not amazing, it's definitely quite good. Nice, clean, modern atmosphere. Across the street is Armando's, truly old school Italian and very good!
