The Best Great Healthy Lunch Options Downtown In New York – So, you work downtown. Or you live downtown. Maybe you just come downtown on occasion. Damn, you must be pretty cool.
If you spend time in the southern part of Manhattan, you have access to some pretty spectacular food. And hopefully, you’ve had a chance to take advantage of all the tremendous burgers and plates of pasta around these parts. But if you’re like us, on most Mondays or Thursdays or even Sundays at 1pm, you’re looking for something relatively healthy to power yourself through the next six hours. Whether you need something quick to pick up or are looking for more of a sit-down situation, here are The Best Great Healthy Lunch Options Downtown
Light House Outpost
We’ve occasionally joked about doing a “best salads in New York City” list, and if we ever do, the Big Salad at Lighthouse Outpost is going near the very top. It’s basically just a big salad with gem lettuce and snap peas and sesame seeds and it makes you feel like you’re making good choices in your life. This is the Nolita sister location of Lighthouse, one of our favorite Williamsburg restaurants, and the menu is full of fresh, kind of healthy options in bowl and sandwich form. It’s a small space with counter seating, but it’s also a major takeout operation.

In New York right now, poke places are kind of like yoga studios. There’s always some new one around the corner, and most of them are… fine. Some of them smell like feet and farts. And a rare few are actually great. What we’re trying to say here is that in a city full of places serving kind of average bowls of raw fish and rice, Chikarashi stands out above the rest. The fish is freshly sliced, and the toppings are quality as well. This is mostly a takeout spot, but there’s a bit of counter seating. It’s worth going slightly out of your way for this option.
