Looking for a bite in Hell's Kitchen

Scott_R | Oct 5, 2009 02:20 PM

I'll be at a conference at a hotel on 57th near 10th the weekend of the 17th, and I ought to have a little free time for lunch--about 45 minutes, I expect. I'd like to run out for a bite that's more than the usual grab-and-go.

I have atypical tastes: if Chinese food, I'll go for chicken feet and duck's neck rather than beef and broccoli. I don't like Italian food, though I'll go for a thin-crust pizza in the tradition of the best of New Haven style. No fast food--McD's and the like is out, as are your basic deli/Boar's Head cold cut sandwiches. A really great street cart would be in the running, but that doesn't include dirty water Sabrett's. Deep fried doesn't do it for me, though that's more a dislike of batter coating than deep frying itself--I've enjoyed rippers (which of course aren't battered).

I know the area isn't a gourmet destination, but I'm not looking for fancy, just interesting.

Also, I'll be coming in by LIRR in the early AM, so if anyone knows a place for GOOD coffee (along the lines of Gimme Coffee, or Joe the Art of Coffee) in the walk from Penn Station up and west, I'd like the tip.
