If you don't liek soup- you have never been to Hale & Hearty. One of my favorite lunch spots around time. Since I travle all around the city- there's always one close by. I especially like the one in Chelsea Market. They offer at least 10 soups a day- I usually go for the specials... Last week I had the cold Shrimp & Asparagas... it was a great lunch... The staff is very friendly and they give free samples (if you can't amke a decision, like me).
Pros: Fresh, Great Taste, Fast/nice Service, convenient locations
