This is a small sandwich shop with counter service and some 2 person tables. The food is heavenly and the staff is very friendly. Try an Egg Cream or Lime Ricky.

It doesn't get more authentic than this, Eisenberg's has served a who's who of personalities for almost 100 years. You gotta eat here just for the old school diner nostalgia and menu

Flatiron District
Offering many of city’s best restaurants and shops set
amid classic New York architecture, the Flatiron
District is no longer under the tourist radar. At 23rd
