In the hustle and bustle of Midtown it can be quite difficult to find good hearty places to enjoy lunch. Below are a couple of gems I've found. Enjoy!
1. Between the Bread: Plenty of seating which includes communal seats, large portions, great price points and the food is delicious. I got chef's salmon, cauliflower and couscous with mushrooms. My friend raved about her chicken paillard with honey mustard sauce, beets and cauliflower.
2. Antico Noé: Straight from Florence, the owners brought their paninis across the Atlantic to Midtown East. I got their famous rustic stuffed chicken panini with rosé sauce, mushrooms and mozzarella.
3. Luke's Lobster- If you suddenly get a lobster craving at work this is the place to go. Although it is a bit pricey for lunch ($16), the lobster is delicious and they have a huge space with outdoor seating.
4. Shake Shack- Why would you get burgers from anywhere else when you can go to Shake Shack? This is the perfect lunch spot if you're looking to grab food and go. Also, yes that is the chick'n shack and no it is not better than the shack burger.
