Lunch near 53/3rd

My office is moving to 53/3rd ave. and I'm looking forward to finding the best places for lunch.

Several years ago I worked in the same building and, since my preferences run to Asian, I was a regular at Bukhara Grill 49/3rd, Sushi Rose, Our Place/Shanghai Tea Garden.

On occasion I'd go to Shun Lee Palace but it seemed inconsistent (sometimes sublime, other times just good but overpriced Chinese). Based on recent postings, it also sounds like Grand Sichuan on 2nd is a good bet.

Looking for best options in the following categories (not restricted to Asian):

1) Chinese, Indian, Pho, Pan Asian (Eat-in, take-out, delivery)
2) Soup
4) French
5) Sushi (eat-in, take-out, delivery, bang-for-buck)
6) Burger
7) Salad
8) Family friendly (in case my wife and 4 year-old girl come to visit me)
9) Business lunch places (good food and atmosphere that's also conducive to conversation)

I look forward to hearing from all the well-informed folks on this site.

Best regards,
