In neighborhood where your lunch options might appear to be limited to a halal cart, TGI Fridays, and a place where you have to wear a jacket and know a minimum of French, The Little Beet is a welcome sight. Sure, you aren’t going to craft an Instagram homage to the kale you eat here (unless you’re just that sort of person), but you can have a few vegetable sides and a protein and leave feeling pretty healthy. It isn’t the cheapest fast-casual operation, but you pay for what you get. The food is fresh, and they’ll even heat up your salmon for you. That's service.

Death & Co
Death & Co. feels like it was built just for us. The drink list is ridiculous…it’s nearly impossible to settle on something because each beverage is intriguing and awesome. And thankfully the food doesn’t suck either.
At Feast, you’re going to have a meal meant to be shared amongst friends. You sit down and they load up your table, Thanksgiving style. We love their approach, but wish there were fewer rules and restrictions.
