Looking good is hard work. So where should one go to replenish energy when giving that credit card a workout? While I've been known to scarf down a pretzel at the Kmart Cafe--if only for the pretty view of Astor Square--sometimes I want something a little tastier. A nice option for a quick Fifth Avenue lunch is the Tea Box Cafe, hidden in the basement of everything-and-its-mother department store, Takashimaya. The smoked salmon sandwich (pictured above) comes in at under $10, which leaves plenty of cash leftover for the trendy Japanese designer goods in the floors above. What are some of your favorite shop-and-dine faves?
