I just started a job across the street from Madison Square Park. Possibly embarassing to admit on Chowhound, but my old midtown go-to for many lunches and morning coffee was Pret a Manger. There are apparently no Prets in the vicinity (WTF? by the way...)
Any quick and borderline healthy and/or not gross or grossly expensive lunch suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Also, where can I get a decent cup of coffee? I drink it black, like a smooth but substantive roast (think stumptown or Pret's Guatemala roast.)
Thanks in advance!!
