In light of obvious self promotion I will add that I do not often work lunches... Felidia offers a 3 course lunch menu for $32.50. I can firmly say that at this point in my career I will never work in a restaurant where I don't stand behind the product, quality, and preparation, and I am impressed with chefs every day. As for uniqueness- the fact that the restaurant has been open since 1981 and stays relevant is almost as unique as seeing a unicorn in this city. Bon Appetito!

One of my more favorite spots in Manhattan, The Rubin Museum of Art. Inside you will find a hidden gem, by the name of Cafe Serai. Not only is this a great spot for unique teas, and amazing coffee; but their menu is not like any others in the city (http://rubinmuseum.org/page/cafe-serai-menu). Full disclosure; I worked at this cafe under old management, and can honestly say that the food has gotten even better!! Some must try items: Beef Momos (Tibetan dumpling), Charred Octopus, Salmon, and the Chicken Liver. Best part about this lunch time spot, on Friday nights they turn the entire cafe in to a Happy Hour lounge with a Tapas menu, cocktails and rotating DJs, shows and talks. Must have lunch spot, and a great "start of the night, date spot" on Fridays.
