Nice quick takeout bite at gourmet grocer Agata & Valentina on the Upper East Side: head for the sushi case and look for seared tuna or salmon, advises Cheese Boy. They’re encrusted with cracked black peppercorns and lightly toasted fennel seeds. Each order comes with a killer mustard sauce–if you don’t see it, ask for it. Best time to go: lunch hour to around 3 p.m.
