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

        While I'm sure that there are closer choices

        (billyboy?), you're @ 14 blocks away from:

          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

          Oh, and A Salt & Battery is on my list, too, although it's further away from FIT.

            If you don't want to go more than a couple of blocks... http://www.johnysluncheonette.com/
             
            I never actually sat down in the place...it is small...but food is good.

              Hey Lee, where exactly is the Fashion Institute located?

                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.
