Some people would say that Eisenberg's Sandwich Shop, a quaint and picturesque throwback lunch joint hard by the Flatiron building, is overvalued because of its atmospheric value. Those people are idiots. It's not possible to overvalue Eisenberg's which is a lifeline to an older and better New York which is rapidly vanishing. The people are equally wrong who say that they make a great pastrami sandwich (they don't) or tuna sandwich (likewise.) They make a great Eisnenberg's experience. I only wish it were a private club, like Soho House, so that only those of us who love it would be allowed to go there. But, sadly, anyone can come and get a piece of chocolate cake (incredible), a cheap cup of coffee (not so incredible), or a glass of U-bet chocolate mik (incomparable.)
Best place in NYC. Period – Eisenberg's is the throwback to the 40's and 50's, right in midtown. This landmark, which consistently doles out excellent tuna melts and pastrami cannot be beat. They only have a few tables, but those in the know eat at the counter. I fear posting this review will bring even more people, but it's worth it. It may not be the ideal lunch spot for some, but those are people who you don't want to be around. So pull up a stool, have an egg cream and pastrami on Rye, listen to the din around you and realize again why you gotta love New York.
