Many of our employees here at the Salisbury Hotel are making an effort to lead a healthy life and big part of that are the choices we make during lunch hour. Luckily there are many great options for health conscious eaters around Midtown West. This week Katariina introduces her four favorites that are just within couple of blocks from the hotel.
35 W 57th St. (between 5th-6th Aves.)
Weekdays 11:00am-10:00pm, Sunday 11:00am-9:00pm

This old diner is tight and the decor is not dressed to impress, but they've got a terrific menu with options to any picky eater, including lots of great vegetarian items. All foods are prepared in the most calorie conscious manner using the freshest and highest quality ingredients. Everything on the menu is available for take-out, plus you can place your order online. They serve everything from baked salmon and eggplant parmesan to veggie burgers and lentil soup.

Juice Generation
979 Eighth Avenue (between 57th & 58th Streets)
Mon - Sat: 7:00am - 9:00pm, Sun: 8:00am - 9:00pm

If you just need something quick to grab and go, this is the place for you. Juice Generation offers fresh-pressed juices, smoothies, soups, sandwiches, raw foods, salads, wheatgrass shots, fresh young coconuts, raw cookies and granola bars. I visit this place almost daily during spring and summer because I don't know any better lunch on a hot day than fresh green juice or smoothie. Extra points they get for using mostly organic ingredients!
922 Seventh Avenue at 58th St.
7am-9pm, 7 days a week

This environmentally conscious cafe/restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner prepared with mainly organic ingredients and their menu offers impressive options for vegetarians and vegans as well: breakfast items, soups, salads, tartines, quiches, desserts and great selection of specialty beverages (including beer and wine). My go-to place for wine and dessert.
913 8th Ave. at 54th Street
Mon-Fri 7am-12am, Sat 8am-12am, Sun 7am-12am

Westerly offers a huge selection of nutritional supplements, organic produce, all natural groceries, environmentally friendly body care products and they also have very nice deli area in the back where you can get fresh made juices, smoothies, soups, salads, sandwiches and packed lunches to go. My absolute favorite grocery store in the area.
