Lunch at MetroTech

I just started working at MetroTech Center in Brooklyn. Any suggestions for lunch? I know there are a ton of places, but which ones are worth visiting?

  1. Souvlaki House has been around since the 60's and always had great gyros:
    158 Lawrence St
    (between Fulton St & Willoughby St)
    Brooklyn, NY 11201

    1. Juniors, a Brooklyn treasure. Great pastrami sammiches and burgers!

      386 Flatbush Avenue Ext, Brooklyn, NY 11201

      1. A new place in MetroTech Two, called La Defense, is pretty good. Also, I think DeKalb Market will re-open soon for weekday lunches -- some interesting choices, if overpriced. If you have time to walk a few more minutes, you could walk down Hoyt Street to Fast & Fresh (Mexican joint with tacos, etc.) or Mile End (Montreal-style Jewish place w/smoked meat, etc.). Also, Nicky's Vietnamese sandwich shop on Atlantic Ave. If you search chowhound for posts on nearby areas -- Smith Street, Atlantic Avenue, Montague Street, etc. -- you will get lots of ideas!
