This is the new fast-casual spot from the people behind one of the least-casual restaurants in NYC, Eleven Madison Park. Here, instead of a $295 tasting menu, you’ll eat a $12-$15 lunch ranging from a roast chicken and spring vegetable salad, to smoked salmon, to hanger steak on crispy rice, to quinoa falafel (but whatever you order, do not miss the milk & honey soft serve). None of the food is fussy at all, and all of it is the sort of healthy stuff that’s exactly what you want to eat at 1pm on a Wednesday. Plus, the comfortable space is run efficiently. If you work nearby, this place is big, excellent news for your lunch rotation.

Finally, someone figured out that an Italian restaurant near Penn Station that serves food people want to eat would do well.
La Pecora Bianca
A pleasant Italian restaurant in Nomad that makes all of its pasta from whole grains, we don’t love La Pecora Bianca, but we can accept it.

Quality cocktails and more than decent food on Smith Street. Brunch is a big deal here.
TAK Room is on the fifth floor of the giant mall at Hudson Yards, and it’s a very expensive place to eat some pretty good American food.
