(I apologize if this has been covered - I wasn't able to find anything in searches.)
If you lived in DC (or Philly or Boston), worked in Manhattan once a month, and took the Acela home at dinner time, where would you pick up your dinner to go? (Please offer any place in Manhattan!)
I've read about Wild Edibles and Dish for take-home meals, but it seems you need to be able to warm those things up. I've not been thrilled with Dean & DeLuca, but it's a standby.
I'm thinking a sandwich, soup, or salad - anything *fresh* and *flavorful* and maybe a half bottle of nice wine. I guess nothing too odiferous, alas.
I don't mind going out of my way for good food.
