Let’s Do Lunch

With the fall social season in full swing, some high-profile places start serving midday meals.

  1. 1. Prune

    54 E. 1st St., nr. First Ave.; 212-677-6221

    After masterminding one of New York’s best brunches, Gabrielle Hamilton expects to institute (and personally cook) lunch by the end of the month. She promises the inevitable burger, but also egg on a roll, a “sous chef” salad, and an old family favorite, marmalade and bacon on pumpernickel.

  2. 2. Morimoto

    88 Tenth Ave., at 16th St.; 212-989-8883

    The Iron Chef does bento boxes, rice bowls, and Wagyu-cutlet sandwiches, all at celebrity-chef prices.

  3. 3. Quality Meats

    57 W. 58th St., nr. Sixth Ave.; 212-371-7777

    A medley of customized chopped salads and gussied-up open-face sandwiches make for a steakhouse lunch that won’t do you in for the day.

  4. 4. Craftsteak

    85 Tenth Ave., at 15th St.; 212-400-6699

    For true carnisseurs, Wagyu sliders, “Wagyu-bacon” BLTs, and Craftsteak burgers with ritzy add-ons like foie gras and truffle butter.

  5. 5. Megu Midtown

    845 UN Plaza, at 47th St.; 212-964-7777

    The $29 bento box selections change daily, and might include anything from teriyaki chicken to miso cod.
