Tribeca Lunching, Stuytown Dining

Hi all, just moved up to the city for a new job, and while I'm well aware that it's totally normal to order food for a lot of everyday meals, I sometimes prefer to get out and walk a few blocks for inexpensive meals. So, since I'm effectively new to the area, I'm hoping I can get some recommendations for some quality standbys. I love a good food cart, and it'd be great to hear about anywhere with a killer deal, or just good takeout.

For lunch, I work just west of the Franklin street subway (on the 1). Any advice on good lunch places that don't cost $11 for a below par sandwich would be great, as would any food cart rec's (I know about and have been to Frites and Meats, but I can't eat hamburgers every day). A place where I could get rotisserie chicken, or some non fast-food hot food would be great.

For dinner, I'm at 1st and 18th, and I know there's a ton of stuff below 14th, so let's say I'm interested in places between 14th and 23rd, and as far west as 3rd Ave. I know about essa-bagel, but other than that, any good spots within a few blocks that have reliable inexpensive food? I'd love to be able to spend $15 for dinner. Also, food carts would be great, but I haven't seen any around!
