    Maybe there's a Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. nearby.

    I don't know whether you are looking to "dine" or just to grab a lunch, but I'd try this place in Chelsea a few blocks south of FIT:
     
    Brats: Dogs and Weiners
     
    http://www.bratsnyc.com/
     
    Oh, and A Salt & Battery is on my list, too, although it's further away from FIT.

    I never actually sat down in the place...it is small...but food is good.

    How have I never heard of this place?  I must be slipping! 
    Lee,  a few suggestions
    1.)  RUB BBQ on 23rd near 7th Ave.
    2.)  Doughnut Plant two doors down from RUB.  I know, not a meal...or is it? :)
    3.)  Hill Country Barbeque on 26th Street between 5th & 6th Aves. 
    4.)  Eisenberg's Sandwich Shop on 5th Ave. between 22nd & 23rd
    5.)  No. 7 Sub Broadway at 28th Street  (I haven't been here but have heard good things about it.  Here's the menu: http://www.no7sub.com/home-01.html)  Pretty experimental stuff but they seem to have a following.
    6.)  Hill Country Chicken on Broadway at 25th Street.  The menu:  http://www.hillcountrychicken.com/               
    Went there once and though it was okay but not crazy about it.  I'll check it out at least two more times before knowing how I really feel about it.
    7.)  Eataly on 5th Ave at 23rd Street.  the new high end (read: expensive) Italian market by Mario Batali.  Just wanted to throw that in there.  Bethgrd and Karilyn ate there a couple of weekends ago and I think they liked it. 
    8.) Murray's Bagels on 8th Ave between 22nd and 23rd.  Love those bagels!
    9.)  Shake Shack (the dark horse on this day) - maybe...  Being that the weather is so awful there probably won't be a line but...you still have to eat it outside.  Thought maybe if it clears up a bit.
    Hope this helps.  Happy Eating!

    The list you posted shows you aren't slipping my friend!
     
    The place I mentioned is no place you'd travel far to visit, but a good solid neighborhood breakfast/lunch counter. I worked in the area for a bunch of years and ate there often.
