If you time it correctly, Smile To Go is one of the best, healthy-ish places to grab lunch in Soho. It’s a small outpost of The Smile with seasonal salads, sandwiches, and vegetables you order at the counter. Like the main spot, Smile To Go is very popular with the hordes of attractive people who work in the area, and the the tiny space is reliably packed from 11:30am to 1:30pm. Hit it earlier or later for best results, and take your food to go (there’s minimal, uncomfortable stool seating).
