They don't make 'em like this anymore. A narrow, no-frills counter joint, Eisenberg's sits in the shadow of the Instagram-worthy Flatiron Building, on a stretch of Fifth Avenue that also includes an Armani Exchange boutique and barn-sized Club Monaco. The sandwiches here are not of the gargantuan, Katz's variety, but what they lack in size they make up for in authenticity. Try the justly famous tuna salad, a revelation served with an ice cream scoop, or a hearty beef brisket sandwich with a side of crisp, straight-from-the-fryer onion rings. And don't skimp on the slaw. New York deli-style coleslaw is different from other region's -- less vinegar, more mayo -- and Eisenberg's version is does good by the house motto: "Raising New York's cholesteral since 1929."
Best for Deli Because: Eisenberg's is a taste of the past, served between two soft, perfectly grainy slices of marbled rye.
