    Wolf and Lamb, Cafe K and Le Marais are all nearby.
    There's also some lunch counter type stuff by the diamond district.

      Taam Tov has seating in the diamond district. You're also not that far from Mendys in Grand Central which has all the Grand Central seating. Technically Kosher Deluxe is nearby, but there is no reason to go there over any of the other options.

        Cafe K for dairy. They don't accept all credit cards.

        Le Marais is good, but heavy for lunch.
        Wolf and Lamb has salad and sandwich options, not as heavy.

        Taam Tov is your best option.

          Yes Ta'am tov is awesome and a good value. Get the Manty - beef dumplings. Mmmm.

              Yes, there is a menu. It's a regular restaurant.

            I'm wondering when the posters who recommended Taam Tov last went there? I used to love it, but after my last visit, several months ago, no more. The menu was more limited, meat drier and not as tasty, service not pleasant (even for a Kosher restaurant, though I'm really basing this on food) - just sadly, a general decline in quality.

              I was there in August and found it as good as I remembered.

                I've only been in the past couple months, so I can't compare it to what it used to be, but I thought the food was good when I went.

                If u really prefer Mendy's, there is an open sitting area underground in 10 Rock (the same bldg that Mendy's is in. Mendy's is on street level on the 48th St side of the bldg and if you enter the bldg lobby and go down a flight of stairs the sitting area is right there.)
