Pretty nice bento box. On the expensive side though.

Unique dinning experience in the heart of Manhattan at the Serene Tea Box eatery, locatted in the basement of Takashimaya Department store on 693 5th Avenue between 54th & 55th streets. First, spend time viewing the multiple floors of upscale clothing, home design, jewelry, and gorgeous floral shop. It is worth viewing for the latest designs and trends in these areas. When hungry, drop in the Serene Tea Box and order the tea box bento, priced at a bargain of $17.00. This order will arrive on a Japanese black laquered
tray with samplings of the food of the house prepared and composed artfully by chef Daniele Kay. You will not regret this experience. IF you have any room left, order from the lucious desserts of your choice. The eatery does not take reservations and we found 4:00 p.m. was a good time to go for an early pre-broadway show meal, leaving time to return to the hotel to freshen up for the night's broadway show.
The decor is predictably understated in the contemporary Japanese style. Service is excellent.
