It’s a new year, and while we’re back to our old stomping grounds, we don’t have to fall back into old habits. A habit we’re practicing this year is savoring our lunch breaks. Lunch should be a welcome break, a chance to re-energize your mind and body, and most importantly be healthy and taste great!
We’ve rounded up a few of the new places opening up in three different, busy neighborhoods of NYC, so you’ll be sure to find one that’s close to your office.
maman Opens in NoMad
The popular — and beautiful — café, bakery and event space, maman is opening at a new location — in NoMad! They already have three successful locations in the city, SoHo, TriBeCa and in the Meatpacking District — not to mention their outpost in Greenpoint and Toronto. This location will have a dedicated catering pick-up counter to pick up fresh salads, sandwiches, their famous nutty chocolate chip cookies of course and much more, making it the perfect spot to grab lunch in the warm and cozy aesthetic they’re known for. And PSA for all the businesses, it’s great for catering group lunches, too.
Opening date: Tuesday, January 16th
Address: 22 w. 25th st, New York, NY 10010 (NoMad)
The fast-casual restaurant chain from California, Tender Greens is coming to New York City this spring. Taking over the old Craftbar location, this first East Coast spot will be a perfect stop for healthy and delicious meals. Whether you’re bringing lunch back to the office or eating in, the chain has something for you. By serving seasonal and responsibly-sourced food, it’s not only the variety and flavors that’ll have you coming back — the feel of doing good will be present, too.
Opening date: February
Address: 900 Broadway, New York, NY 10003 (Flatiron)
Dig Inn has quickly won over our hearts as a great, healthy option for both lunches and dinners in the office. The concept is easy, the food is fresh and flavorful, and the servings are generous. With 15 locations already in NYC, it’s sure to say that New Yorkers can’t get enough of Dig Inn — and now TriBeCa is getting its own location. This will be a prime spot to ensure a healthy and delicious lunch that will easily keep you full all through your remaining work hours.
Opening date: TBA, Spring 2018
Address: 412 Greenwich Street, New York, NY 10013 (TriBeCa)
