looking for healthy lunch options in Brooklyn [moved from The Best]

Going out for lunch in Brooklyn. Area doesn't really matter. Looking for healthy, good food, nice atmosphere.

  1. this may sound weird but there is a hari krishna temple on Schermerhorn Street right off of Nevins that has a luncheonette in the basement called Govinda's Lunch Club and it is vegetarian (organic) and the chef prepares meals that range from $5-$8. She also makes deserts using agave. The mango cheesecake is great. She makes all the salad dressings as well. I believe all produce are organic and locally sourced. As for atmosphere...well it's a temple and the music is very soothing. Hope you can get there. You won't be dissappointed.
