Lunch around Battery Park - World Trade Center ??

Looking for a "not too fancy" but good food restuarant for lunch midweek in and around the general WTC / Battery Park area? Maybe a GREAT pizza place. Or a GREAT hot dog. Or a great Deli soup.

We will be walking from Battery Park to WTC and plan on having lunch around this time.

any ideas? Thanks.

There is a Shake Shack on 215 Murray Street, a couple of blocks from the World Trade Center area.

Shake Shack is across the busy West Street. On West Broadway and Church St, there are lots of options as well, Pain Quotidien, Edwards (a casual French Bistro) , or you can go to Whole Foods Market and have a bite to eat from their array of pre-made meals. Lots of Food trucks in the area as well.

Brookfield Place/World Financial Center (right opposite the 9/11 Memorial and sort of overlooking it via the Winter Garden windows) has quite a few eating places, food carts and food trucks. They would be good for a quick lunch.

Brookfield place is in the midst of a major renovation and the only restaurant still open is P J Clarke's. There are a few takeout places but it is all boarded up and you'll probably never find them. If you're on that side of West Street, go to the block on the north side across Vesey Street where the Shake Shack is-- there are other restaurants there.

Near the WTC memorial entrance is KoKo for Asian, on the other side of Broadway is Les Halles for French.

Can I assume the food trucks and carts are available in the winter too (Dec. 27th)?

If you want something a bit more substantial stop into O'hara's bar near the south side of the site. It is a survivor's bar with decent bar food.

Sweis: this is a rapidly-changing area so you should check back just before your trip for an update. the food trucks are there year-round, but you may have a problem finding an indoor place to eat because they are really for the convenience of the office workers, who can take it back to their desks. Here is the schedule for the trucks:

Loftusrd: try George's for breakfast.

There's a great coffee bar right in Battery Park. There's also a beer garden there that looks like it would be OK for lunch. I cant think of the name and have no idea of the quality, but there is a big restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating on the water on the side of Battery Park closest to South Ferry.
