I found Eisenberg's walking back to our hotel from the Flatiron and picked up two splendid sandwiches to go. Any place that has served good food successfully since 1929 deserves a try, and the sandwiches were splendid. The corned beef was warm, the eye bread...More

If you go to New York and want to feel the live in New York then go to this snack bar. Amazing ambiance and very good classic food. If you want to eat something special the best choose is the pastrami sandwich.

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
Street is the famous triangular Flatiron Building,
which makes a good picture no matter what angle you
photograph it from. Be sure to look up at the elegant
architecture as you stroll the streets- much of this
neighborhood is part of a historic district that was
