The March Hit List, Lunch Edition: Diner, Ho Foods, HiHi Room, Keens and More


If there’s one thing remote life has taught us, it’s that lunch is something to look forward to. An excellent bowl of noodles for takeaway. Midday sandwiches and sunshine with a co-worker or friend. Pasta — and perhaps some wine? — followed by a late-afternoon nap. If these seem like remote memories, well, now’s the perfect time to let restaurants do the work of zhuzhing up your workday, even if that workday is still all Zoom. Your March Hit List is here, and it’s all about the best lunch options on tap in New York.
