The Best Spots for Lunch in Midtown

When we’re not enjoying lunch at Parker and Quinn, we like to venture out and explore some of the best spots for lunch in Midtown. With no shortage of options, here are a few of our favorite restaurants to enjoy a quick bite for lunch.

The Kati Roll Company
Just a short walk from Refinery, The Kati Roll Company serves delicious and  authentic Indian street food. With very reasonable prices, The Kati Roll company is an affordable lunch option in the garment district. The signature dish, The Kati Roll, is made of warm paratha (Indian flat bread) filled with a variety of meats, vegetables and cheese. The meats are marinated in a blend of Indian spices, which you can taste almost immediately when taking your first bite. These Kati Rolls are bursting with flavor and are quite filling. The Kati Roll Company is vegetarian friendly, serving a mixed veggie patty option for those who don’t eat meat. Other options include chana masala, paneer cheese, egg, shrimp or potatoes.  In the tradition of Indian street food culture, grab a roll or two and head to Bryant Park and enjoy lunch in the park.

El Sabroso
El Sabroso is a hidden gem in plain sight. Unassuming and tucked away in the loading dock of a building right here in the Garment District is El Sabroso, a tiny restaurant serving authentic Latin American food. If you blink, you just might walk past the entrance stowed away in a narrow old building. A simple lunch counter, El Sabroso serves daily specials like stew chicken, roast pork, roast chicken, roast lamb and more. One of the best things about this tiny eatery is that there is a welcoming aura and everyone feels like a local. On average, meals cost about $8. If that isn’t a steal, we don’t know what is! P.S. — Ask for the spicy sauce, you won’t regret it.

La Bonne Soupe
Before you assume that La Bonne Soupe only serves soup (though it would be a good guess) this French American bistro whips up everything from crepes to hamburgers to filet mignon. Still, enjoying a nice bowl of soup paired with bread, salad, dessert and a beverage is a treat anytime of the year. In the warmer months, enjoy dining out on the terrace overlooking the bustling streets of NYC. There’s no better way to enjoy lunch than feeling like you’ve transported to a little café in Paris. Bon appetit, as the French say!
