I have eaten here a number of times and most recently, with the higher prices, food was disappointing. The salad was anemic lettuce and not fresh. I have had the chili which was delicious and the sandwiches.

hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is
a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of
