This is a little counter inside of a Japanese grocery store (Katagiri) on Lexington Avenue. If you need something quick for lunch or dinner, get a few rice balls to go - they’re filled with things like grilled salmon, shrimp tempura, and pickled plums, and they’re only a few dollars each. Also worth noting, Katagiri is lined with shelves of pre-packaged food as well lots of Japanese candy and snacks.
