Good sit down lunch and happy hour spots near 48th & 8th?

I'll be working up near 48th & 8th this week and I would love to check some new stuff out. I was thinking Toloache for lunch one day and maybe happy hour at the Russian Vodka Room? Any suggestions for the other days? I'll have about an hour for lunch each day- nothing crazy like Le Bernardin but more than just a sandiwch place- thanks!

  1. Don Antonio
    Azuri Cafe for falafel
    Gazala Palace

    Lots of options on 9th - do a search for "9th Avenue"

      One caution: Don Antonio apparently got shut down by the DOH late last week, so it may still be closed next week! Hopefully it will reopen soon...

        Ended up at Danji for lunch today. This place was on my radar for a while then fell off. So so glad to finally go. The tofu was unreal! I can't wait to take my vegetarian friends here to try it out. The lamb sliders were delicious as well but oh my that tofu... Great rec.
