We asked Steven A. Shaw, director of culinary Web site and author of "Turning the Tables: The Insider's Guide To Eating Out" for the best secret spots in the city to enjoy your feast away from your desk. Of course, there are obvious meccas, from the city's great parks to the food court that is Grand Central Terminal. But thanks to New York's aggressive program of "incentive zoning," there are more than 500 other public spaces in or around major buildings in which you can chow down. Happy eating!
