New job at 48th and Madison

This week, I'm starting a new job in a building at 48th and Madison. It's not a neighborhood I know very well at all. Where should I go other than "the downstairs salad place," which seems to be very popular among my new colleagues?

Thanks in advance.

        There's also the handy live map of food trucks here as well as search by cuisine

    2. You are just a block and a half from Rockefeller Center

      1. Unsure what you're looking for exactly, but there's a Xi'an Famous Foods on 45th, Brick Lane Curry on 52nd, Hide Chan further on 52nd, and Treehaus on 53rd and 3rd.

          have to give a shout out to brick lane curry. we had a group on and a reservation at the 52nd st branch. arrived and they had an emergency shut down. they called the 93rd st branch to honor our groupon and gave us a credit for the cab fare to get there. Could not have been nicer, really went the extra yard.

            Brick lane curry also owns Radicchio Italian restaurant on the same block and it is really good as well. For under $15, you get a nice bread basket, salad and a large plate of delicious pasta or risotto dishes. I always see Italians eating there.
