Grand Central Lunch Choices

I've been at the new job for a few months now, and I wanted to share my current lunch haunts and solicit new suggestions...

Grand Central Food Court: It's a good option when you don't really know what you want to eat. I like Cafe Spice, but since I usually pick up and take back to my office, I don't do this anymore. I love Ciao Bella Gelato and Little Pie Company to satisfy mid-afternoon snackies.

Grill 44: 44th b/w Lex and 3rd. After reading the NYT article about the sabich sandwich, I get this about twice a week. Egglant, hard boiled egg and hummus.

Cafe Zaiya: (41st b/w Madison and 5th) Something for everyone. I usually get one of the bento boxes

Cipriani to go: (42nd b/w Park and Lex) Expensive, but you feel like you are in Europe

Chipotle: (44th b/w Lex and 3rd) The line does move quickly

Oms/b: (45th b/w Lex and 3rd) Rice balls place. I can see how this gets expensive fast, but I find three make for a satisfying meal under $7. Also, given the price, you can try everything. I like the wasabi shrimp and the plum.

'Wichcraft (Bryant Park): only when I have time to sit in the Park and eat outside. Also, a bit pricey to make a habit.

So, these have been my regular places. I alternate these with the standard midtown deli in my building. Any thoughts on what I might be missing?
