The easy way to lunch at your desk
Meals boxed to go or brought to you

09/29/16

 Sometimes lunch in a noisy restaurant or cafe is just not how you want to spend your 20 to 60 minutes off — you’d rather relax, or just as likely, you don’t even have time to leave your workplace.

If you fit that bill, there are a variety of downtown restaurants that make getting lunch out simpler by adding delivery and boxed lunch options. 
Spencer George, owner of Granite State Lunch Box, said the company’s very busy during lunch hour delivering to all of Manchester, but especially in the Queen City’s business-heavy locations along Elm Street and the millyard. 
“Delivery cuts out some of the time that someone has to be away from their job. ... They don’t have to order, wait, then go back [to the office],” George said.
He credits a large menu for his business’s success; you can order most anything from GSLB, including subs, burgers, hot dogs, soups, quesadillas, paninis and salads, its most popular item being the cranberry walnut chicken salad melt.
George said GSLB also offers a catering service that includes boxed lunch options, which have become very popular during flu season, particularly with large groups. Everything is individually packaged, and the only person touching your food is you. This service also increases the amount of choice you get in your meal, which is in high demand as people become more particular about their food choices and want to eat vegetarian, gluten-free or dairy-free.
The power of choice is one reason the Hanover Street Chophouse offers boxed lunches. HSC Executive Assistant Anne Kenyon said the lunches feature a starter (house salad, caesar salad, clam chowder, onion soup, soup du jour), entree (shrimp scampi, market fish, grilled Scottish salmon, Boston-cut New York strip, omelet with cheese and chive) and side (creamed spinach, potato salad, vegetables or fries). 
“It’s a simple way to order, and I think it saves time too. It’s for people who come for lunch and want to get in and out. These items are simple to cook, and they don’t take as much time,” Kenyon said.
John Constant, owner of Constantly Pizza in Concord — which has a strong business providing boxed lunches in addition to pizza — echoed this idea.
“We try and accommodate everyone,” he said. “We have veggie subs and gluten-free bread, or we can offer the option to replace a sandwich with a small chef’s salad.”
Boxed lunch orders keep staff busy, Constant said. They typically get to the restaurant at 7 a.m. to start preparing orders for office meetings.
