OMG, this is my life! I feel your pain! Either go to Whole Foods* or Todd English Food Hall in the basement of the Plaza Hotel. Look at this TEFH menu and tell me that each of you cannot find something. C’mon. I’m not going to tell you that either of them is spectacular or the best food you’ve ever eaten or anything like that, but if you’ve all got conflicting priorities, these two places could do it for you.
* (Whole Foods warning: Chelsea location has nowhere to sit, Columbus Circle is always way too crowded – it’s a complete madhouse, Union Square is nearly always way too crowded, but Tribeca and Houston St have a lot of seating and great selections.)
