Lunch tomorrow in east 40s, 50s

Tomorrow I have a doctor's appointment on 38th and 2nd ending about 11. I have to be at 57th and 8th by about 12:45. Seeking lunch.

I like most kinds of food, especially Chinese, Thai, Japanese, Italian.

Looking for something relatively quick and that opens a little early (11:30 or so).

I could go to Szechuan Gourmet on 56th, it is very good, but I go there a lot, seeking something new. I also thought of Phoenix Garden, but they don't open til noon and I don't think I could eat there and make it cross town.

  1. So it sounds to me you really want west not east

    Pure Thai - Best Thai around IMO
    Ippudo - 11:30 should be just about line-less

    1. Sakagura opens at 11:30 and has some great non-sushi japanese options, an easy walk from your dr office

      1. Thanks to both of you

        1. Ma Peche (56 St. between. 5th & 6th Aves.) starts lunch at 11:30.

          1. I wound up finishing at the doctor much earlier than expected, so I walked all the way to Ippudo and had one good bowl of noodles.
