I recently began a job on 131st between Broadway and 12th Avenue, in the epicenter of Columbia University's "Manhattanville" expansion. Because the area is pocked by languishing automobile repair shops and eminent domain construction wastelands, I would be especially grateful for takeout lunch recommendations. So far Fairway has been my go-to (really excellent self-service hot and cold lunch items), but is there anything else? I don't consider Dinosaur BBQ and/or Hudson River Cafe to be takeout-friendly; something cheaper and faster would be ideal. Thanks!
