I see a lot of threads discussing the best sandwiches, but they tend to either be delis or a single sandwich at a restaurant that otherwise features full entrees (or the rest of their menu is unremarkable).
I'm looking for a place that features a lunch menu that has more "traditional" lunch items (sandwiches, salads, etc.), but what they do offer is delicious (of course), and are more creative or feature great ingredients.
Any price range or manhattan location is fine. Bonus points for being a sit-down restaurant.
Any suggestions? TIA
