Greenwich Ave Grub on the Go

Where to go for an express lunch

Whether you work on Greenwich Ave, or are out enjoying a shopping therapy stroll, lunch on the avenue is likely on the agenda. For an express lunch that allows you to sit down and enjoy a good meal, while getting you out in time to take care of business, there are a lot of options to choose from. Here are our four favorites:

Bruckners Good to Go

Richard Sertig has owned this favorite of the Greenwich Avenue workforce for 10 years. For a quick lunch that will get you back to the office before your boss even knows you left, this is the spot. You can’t go wrong with the extensive menu that’s heavy on wraps but if you’re looking for guidance, the #1 best seller is the roasted thai chicken. Is it time for a lunch break yet?

Meli Melo

Once you get past the line that often spills out of this bustling café, you’re in for a fast – and very French – lunch. Meli Melo has been a popular Avenue lunch spot for nearly 20 years because the selection of fresh fruit juices, savory and sweet crepes and continental vibe simply can’t be beat. Greenwich patrons know that they are lucky to have a slice of Paris on Greenwich Avenue. But unlike a real Parisian restaurant, you won’t have to wait long to get your meal here.

My Favorite Place

For young families walking down the avenue in need of a pit stop this restaurant lives up to its name. If you’re looking for a kid-friendly place that parents can get excited about this is your spot. Adults love the cozy vibe and comfort food and will appreciate that the restaurant caters to their kids’ tastes with an extensive menu that includes a baby food line. A great spot for a quick lunch, you may like it so much that you decide to come back for the opposite of an express lunch, a kids birthday party!

Kira Sushi

Sushi is the ultimate express lunch. Healthy, fast and fresh — it’s the cuisine of choice for many of us on the prowl for a quick bite. We have many options for sushi in Greenwich but the best kept sushi secret in town is Kira. Tucked away behind boutiques on Lewis Street, it feels like a secret hideaway yet it’s conveniently right off the avenue. Fresh sashimi and interesting rolls will keep you coming back and the attentive staff will have you on your way in no time.
