This is a homier version of all those fast-casual places where you point at food and someone scoops it onto a plate for you. Here, you pick from a few different vegetables and proteins and leave with a takeout lunch that’s actually pretty good for you.

Between the Bread has two locations in Midtown and a third in Chelsea.
