TIny little place, but so worth it. I had a pastrami sandwich with coleslaw and mustard. Very yummy! Not a huge portion, like some pastrami sandwiches, but very satisfying!

Made a visit during my food on Foot tour. Great local spot! Loved the East Village. They were very accommodating to our large tour. Great local soda. Small but quaint!

Definitely not your run of the mill touristy place. Funky little sandwich bar, worth seeking out in East Village. You are in NYC -- you have to have the pastrami!

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
