Only in New York can you walk into a housewares store and walk out with lunch. At least I think you can only do this in New York. For the unfamiliar the Bed, Bath & Beyond store in Chelsea has a Cafe (as a friend once put it, "That’s the way Beyond part."). I don’t love their salads, my usual lunch, but the burritos are fantastic. (Disclosure: I know less than nothing about Mexican food, so what I think is fantastic is completely relative.)
I particularly like the veggie burrito. First, because I feel sort of virtuous eating it. Second, because the carrots and eggplant are sweet and contrast with the spicy salsa. Yum!
