Thanks to Claire for this lunch recommendation. Met my lunch date here last Friday and we were seated immediately. The waiter was friendly and helpful, our sandwiches were hearty (I brought half of my turkey/cheese/cranberry panini home), salad was huge, check was totally reasonable (I think maybe $12-$15 each?). I'm totally excited to introduce other friends to the place. It's too bad there are sooo many establishments packed on Fifth Ave, unless someone points out the gems (like the good folks on chowhound), you'll just feel overwhelmed by the numbers.
