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.

Clinton St. Baking Company
During brunch hours, it’s not uncommon for people outside Clinton Street Baking Company to wait two hours for the pure, fluffy cakes of ecstasy that this place is known for. We won’t join them…but we can’t blame them either.
Minnie’s is a casual little spot on the LES where you can stop by for a burger or a farro salad without a reservation on a Friday night.
Finally, the kind of restaurant the Upper West Side has long been starved for. The Ribbon has style and substance and does classic food right.
