The Lunch Lounge

Channel 15 personalities and hotel and business guests are among the lunchtime clientele at this tiny eatery tucked into an office complex off 44th Street north of Van Buren Street. The menu features $8 signature sandwiches like the tasty Southwest chipotle chicken Panini, $6 build-your-own sammies made with Boar’s Head meats, salads, and a few a.m. options like the breakfast burrito. Waits can be long during lunchtime, but the food’s a boredom beater for the numerous chain restaurants found along 44th Street.
