My mom has a business appt in the city this morning, and we plan to go to lunch after.
Since "lunch with mom" will not be pizza at Penn Station (which is great, BTW, but lacks any atmosphere whatsoever!)I need a decent place to grab a bite somewhere within about 5-6 blocks N/S and/or 1-2 blocks E/W of 31st and 7th (mom really can't hike too far!)
Ethnic OK (I already thought of Koreatown) but I was hoping for a nice little sit-down cafe type place for a sandwich, salad or soup type of meal (like Mayrose or City Bakery in the Flatiron district). Price not really an issue (hey, mom is buying!)
Any suggestions from those who work in the area would be great! If not, we will have to trek to a neighborhood I am more culinarily familiar with!
