Having recently relocated the northeastern edge of midtown from the East Village, I am now a little lost when it comes to where to grab a bite, and there isn't a ton of info out there about everyday eating in this particular area.
So, I am looking for suggestions in the 50's and 60's roughly east of lexington: anywhere from best hole-in-the-wall sandwich shops and diners to fancier fare. Really, I don't even know where to get good coffee (no Mud truck, I presume).
I know about ess-a-bagel and the Indian row on 58th. Some other place I've seen (but not tried yet) are the Moonstruck Diner on 58th, Les Sans Culottes East, Bruce's Bakery on 56th & 1st.... are these any good?
So, my esteemed colleagues in eating, please steer me in the right direction!
