Sources tell Grub Street that as of this morning, two new Pret a Mangers have arrived — the new Astor Place location (formerly home of Karen's restaurant) and another one on Hudson and Charlton. Another location at 45th and Sixth will open in a week. This is exciting lunchtime news if you enjoy Love Bars, Balsamic chicken sammies, and precise calorie counts ... and a fabulous alternative to Starbucks, if their bathrooms do fade out.
