Workday lunches

Tim H. | Sep 15, 2003 03:45 PM

Put this down to the musings of a newbie in the workforce, but what do people in this town do for weekday lunches when they're not splashing out at Vong or doing the expense account thing at City Crab? I assume there are other people like me who just slip out and buy food back to the office -- how does one escape the monotony of the turkey sandwich? Please tell me we're not limited to standard-issue sandwiches and Hale n' Hearty Soups! I'm on 3rd ave in the 50s, and have been here about two weeks so far, but the blandness of the cuisine is starting to get me down. Ideas for alternative (and quick) lunches and/or places around the area would be *extremely* welcome!
