Sometimes it feels as though you aren’t sure what country the name refers to, but it doesn’t matter: what does matter is the food, and here at Country Kebab, you’ll find suitable falafel, shwarma, and great lamb kebab (pictured). The lamb is tender, juicy, not gamey at all, and for $9.50, you get a platter with your choice of sides, served with pita. A sandwich with the same cooked-to-order lamb will only run you $6.50, and fill you up just as well. In cool or rainy weather, be sure to check out their soup selection: the steady flow of customers coming in to ask about the soup of the day is a sure sign that the soups are worth a try.

Sure, lots of places have lunch menus, especially those in Manhattan. What makes Bombay Indian Cuisine’s lunch menu special, however, is that while most places will cull the menu to a handful or two of dishes from which you get to choose, here at Bombay Indian, they open nearly the whole menu for you to pick from: choose any chicken, lamb or vegetarian item from the menu for $7.95, and it’s served with basmati rice, salad and naan. Choose from various curries, masalas, saag, korma, and even butter chicken.

When Del Posto first opened in 2005, it was lauded as an over-the-top, gilded lily addition to the Batali empire. Since then, the restaurant has found its groove and settled down a bit, content to exist happily on the quiet stretch of 10th Avenue that it occupies. One of the best things to come from Del Posto is certainly its $29 three course prix fixe lunch menu, allowing you to choose an antipasto, primo OR secondo, and a dolce. The menu changes to reflect the seasons, but what doesn’t change is the amount of care that goes into each dish that comes from the kitchen. Choose wisely – or just come back next week to order what you missed this week. The desserts are heavenly as well (pictured: chocolate ricotta tortino with Sicilian pistachios and olive oil gelato); even nicer is all the extras they bring you with your dessert. A great bargain can be had while still spoiling yourself here at Del Posto.
