This is a homier version of all those fast-casual places where you point at food and someone scoops it onto a plate for you. Here, you pick from a few different vegetables and proteins and leave with a takeout lunch that’s actually pretty good for you. The menu also changes frequently, so you won’t end up eating the same food every day while you stare out your office window, wondering if there's more to life than kale and brussels sprouts. Between the Bread has two locations in Midtown and a third in Chelsea.
