Lunch Options near 18th & Pk Ave. South

Hello lovely CHers,

I am starting a new job next week on Pk Ave South btwn 17th & 18th and I need some lunch tips. Being a fairly regular CHer, I know of a lot of the serious dinner restaurants that are near my new employment spot, but I'm a bit less in-the-know when it comes to reasonably priced workday lunches.

I am coming from employment in a relative food wasteland, so am very excited about all that my new hood has to offer. I love just about every type of food, but tend to try to stick to relatively healthy things at lunch, so I can splurge more at dinner, though this is not a requisite. Things on my list already: Maoz, Tossed, Whole Foods, the U.Square farmers market, Bonobo, Le Pain Quotidien, Pure Take Away. What else should I add to my list? What about good local sushi? And which of the more serious good restaurants have reasonably priced lunch specials?

Also taking suggestions for good happy hour spots for post-work drinks in the hood.

As always, thanks for the tips and insight.
