Ideas near Tenement Museum today? a y

I am going to the Tenement Museum and will finish there at noon today. Then will head up to work at 1 St.
Any ideas for a place to eat something light nearby and/or take out food for then or for the day?
No constraints. Thanks!

      Thanks so much for the quick reply. It sounds good and location is perfect.

    2. The Meatball Shop is two blocks away on Stanton and is pretty cool, especially for lunch.

          I was going to say Dudley's. I think the new Irving Farm coffee shop is doing some food, and I'm also partial to El Rey on Stanton which has just rolled out a light lunch menu.

        2. Taim on Spring st is not too far

            Pretty far, given all the other good options in the immediate area.

              Agree but doesn't hurt to mention. The falafel obsessed in me would walk the extra 5 mins for good falafel, plus it could be on the way for the OP

                You people are wonderful. Thanks for all the great suggestions, which I will use today and after.

                  Too late for today, but punjab deli (hole in the wall open 24/7) is great for take out and always full of cabbies. Menu changes daily:

                    Thank you so much for the recommendation of Punjab.I've passed it so often but never went in. It is really in my work backyard. I will definitely go.
