The 16 Most Delicious Lunches You Can Order Downtown

You might imagine that Refinery29-ers have pretty good bag game. And, we do. Especially when those bags are white, plastic, and printed with a bright red "Thank You." We're talking about our meal deliveries, of course.

And while most New Yorkers might assume our selection for delicious eats in downtown NYC is limited, new local spots popping all across the neighborhood have made the Financial District a destination for hot eateries. So, when it comes to our mid-day meal plan, we're actually overwhelmed with way too many options to choose from.

The perfect lunch is so much more than just sustenance. It's a break from the 9-to-5 grind, something that can either spice up your routine or sweeten the deal of an already awesome day. Our extensive experience with ordering in has yielded us a certain savoir faire (one too many bad sandwiches can do that to you!) that we imagine might be helpful the next time you sign on to choose your grub. Consider this your invitation to picnic on our Seamless secrets.
