Meeting before a movie in Union Square, a friend turned my on to this simple but surprisingly good, salads-and-sandwiches place, 3 Square, on 15th between Union Square East and Irving Place. Nothing fancy, but they seemed to take a lot of care prepping our sandwiches (I always give bonus points to places with fresh basil). They do the Tossed/Chopt dictate-your-own-salad thing. It's mostly takeout, but there's several tables as well. Seems to be a young, NYU crowd. It's shares a kitchen with Link, which is not the greatest place. But for an $8 pre-theater meal, I'm not complaining.
