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.

Radiance Tea House
Radiance Tea House is a great little place to get some grub, drink a pot of tea, and maybe peruse a text about Buddhism. We find ourselves in here from time to time to do exactly that – except for the Buddhism part.
Hidden behind red velvet curtains inside Midtown's Le Parker Meridien hotel, this staged hole in the wall with eternal lines has NYC's best burger.
Everything at Kingside is overpriced and underwhelming. Spare yourself and only go if you feel like checking out the beehive of glammed-up female and single rich dude activity.

Rabbits is a casual neighborhood breakfast/lunch spot in Soho serving food that feels homemade.
Gallow Green is the rooftop bar on top of the hotel in Chelsea where Sleep No More takes place, although you don’t have to wear a mask to drink here.
Lavender Lake could get away with being a just great bar with a large outdoor patio. However, it scores extra points from us for putting some care into curating a small but solid selection of bar snacks and entree sized plates.
