New Yorkers Dining Down?

Eisenberg's Sandwich is one of Manhattan's longest running lunch counters. It's the kind of place where the short order cook will gladly pile your plate high with pastrami, when all you wanted was a turkey club! The two little girls in the window sure look happy so what's this talk about "dining down"? Either way Eisenberg's got it covered.  (enlarge lower pic for swell reflection of the Flatiron Building)

Opened for business the year the stock market crashed. I'd say the Eisenbergs know a thing or two about surviving in business.

I like the upper reflection much more!

This looks like the sort of place our family would love to visit! Those little girls do look happy. I enlarged the photo as you suggested....there's a great self-portrait of you in the reflection of the glass!

BTW, You cinched multiple visits from Wayne with that new header photo! Whooooeeeee!

I was being very stupid. I was studying the window for the reflection and saw nothing but there it is on the building! Great photos :)

Virginia said...

I've frequented this same place. I love this photo with the girls smiling faces. Great shot KM!

Virginia said...

Oh I note the voluptuous header came down. Wayne lurking (leering?) about too much I suppose!

How could I have missed this place!? I'm on my way now....

I adore the reflection of the Flatiron Building - especially the faces in the relief.

Did anyone else see Ken's reflection in the window? Does he really look like Bogart, and if so, is it the Marlowe Bogart or the African Queen Bogart?
