I have a new gig at 48th and Third, but have no idea what's good in the hood for lunches. Cheap and yummy lunch ideas would be highly appreciated. I like all kinds of food, esp. Italian, Chinese, Bistro/cafe type, burger joints, diners, sushi, pizza, etc. Anywhere roughly between 42nd and 57th, 1st Ave. to Lex would be great, and the closer to 48th and Third the better. Also, what are the good after work bar hangs?
Also, any good coffee places around this area? I'm not into Starbucks these days. Thanks!
