This is the new fast-casual spot from the people behind one of the least-casual restaurants in NYC, Eleven Madison Park. Here, instead of a $295 tasting menu, you’ll eat a $12-$15 lunch ranging from a roast chicken and spring vegetable salad, to smoked salmon, to hanger steak on crispy rice, to quinoa falafel (but whatever you order, do not miss the milk & honey soft serve). None of the food is fussy at all, and all of it is the sort of healthy stuff that’s exactly what you want to eat at 1pm on a Wednesday. Plus, the comfortable space is run efficiently. If you work nearby, this place is big, excellent news for your lunch rotation.
