Best lunch spots

I'll be downtown for a couple days this week, and am looking for two lunch spots. I love healthy salads and especially fish. Any recommendations for lunch spots? I don't mind casual, but trend toward fancier digs.

(I'm from the 'burbs, so most of my time in Philly is evening dinners.)

  1. Oyster House and Estia both have good fish. Tria would fit the bill for a good salad.

      Tria is a good suggestion. The salads are good, and it's a nice, more upscale casual. HipCityVedge gets a lot of good feedback, but it's VERY casual and much more of a take-out option.

    2. Throw in Hip City Vedge for good salad and vegetarian options. I second the Oyster House recommendation, and they are very fast especially if you eat at the counter.

      1. I would maybe give the edge to Estia in this case. They have truly excellent fish, and I love their salads, especially the greek country salad (horiatiki) and the salad with grilled rare tuna. In addition to the regular lunch menu, they have a $30, 3 course prix fixe lunch, or an $18, 2 course "express" lunch.
