We missed this earlier this year but recently noticed a new Pret a Manger in the O’Neill Building at 655 6th Avenue (at 20th Street). The British fresh fast food chain will soon have 36 stores in Manhattan and does a killing with the midtown takeaway lunch crowd. They were one of the few food chains to continue to expand during the recession and it has not slowed down. You ma recall they opened a Pret a Manger near Madison Square Park in 2011.
Their motto is ‘Good natural food’ and they have won this writer over with their prepared-that-day sandwiches and wraps (see menu here). This location will be open 6:30am-10pm weekdays and 8am-9pm on Saturday and 8am-8pm on Sunday.
