Description

Village Voice's Description

Step into the past at Eisenberg's Sandwich Shop, when sandwiches weren't made with faddish ingredients like arugula, pesto, and ciabattas. In 1929, New York City was paved with these places. A lonely presence on this stretch of Fifth Avenue among fast-food emporia and pita palaces, it steadfastly retains the standard lunch menu of soups, sandwiches, and sour pickles. The egg salad is creamy and clean-tasting, and only slightly salty. Order it on rye, and strike a blow for heirloom eating.

    It still serves the working person’s lunch and classic New York City non-alcoholic beverages in like, 2 minutes flat. – Anthony Bourdain, No Reservations

    Lime Rickey: Considering the alarming color, a truly delicious thing. - Anthony Bourdain, host of No Reservations

    Sit at the counter and enjoy the best Philly Cheese Steak outside of Philly! Also good are the hot pastrami sandwich and the egg cream.
