We’re fairly certain Naya’s existence is highlighted during most corporate Midtown office orientation presentations. Or, that’s what should be happening, at least. It’s not a secret, but this fast-casual Middle Eastern spot is really useful. It’s pretty much Lebanese Sweetgreen, with beef shawarma and freekeh bowls instead of kale caesars - and you’ll be able to get a ton of food for around $11. The one on 43rd and 3rd Avenue get really busy during lunch time, but you can always order ahead for pick-up.

Run by the same folks that brought Totto Ramen to Midtown, Hide-Chan also opened this summer and we’re glad to report that it’s another solid addition to Midtown eating.
