Office Nabe-Quick Eats
by Marissa Chen
Tried-and-true places that serve up pretty good to great food relatively quickly and, most importantly on those crazy deadline-days, are not more than a few blocks from the office.

I know this is supposed to be purely 'quick eats,' but truth be told, the wait can get pretty long. Their open kitchen is tiny, staffed by one, maybe two cooks plus a cashier (who all usually take turns serving to seated customers with time to spare) on a good day, and they serve ambitious food for what their space can churn out and what it hints at (that is, a joint with on-the-go food). That being said, food is pretty delicious, if a bit pricey for the area, and it's mad close to the office. Call ahead is you're pressed for time.
