Quiet and reasonable midtown lunch

It's not my usual neighborhood but am looking for a quiet, casual, reasonable - in other words - not your typical midtown establishment - for lunch - 3rd Avenue to 8th - 36th to 59th

Will be at the Fountainbleu!

but will also be able to get out to eat ---would wwelcome suggestions on places nearby - preferably walkable - and ethnic ----

Specific Miami Beach Suggestions

Traveling early September with two children but need to eat well - will not have car but obviously can find transportation - but really interested in places just north of South Beach, preferably in the 20's and 30's - ethnic would be great but really just good food.

Trestle - a very pleasant surprise
