Two years ago we shared our picks for where to eat near Times Square, the focal point of New York's tourist economy and home to many a chain mega-restaurant. But amid the mammoth TGI Friday's and Guy Fieri's 500-seat restaurant, you'll find plenty of quality places for a quick bite, a casual lunch, or a full sit-down meal. This guide covers the picks from our original guide, plus our new favorite spots we've encountered since July 2011.
'City Sandwich' on Serious Eats
What is it about breakfast sandwiches? Whether they feature melted cheese or a runny yolk, they're almost always oozing with warm and gooey yellow deliciousness. In our continued celebration of National Sandwich Month, here are 17 of our favorite breakfast sandwiches, each so good you'll be looking forward to your alarm going off in the morning.
When we first tried City Sandwich in Hell's Kitchen, we loved their crisp, sandwich-perfect crusty bread (from a Portuguese bakery in New Jersey), the unusual sausages they often use, and the general construction of their sandwiches: stuffed full but never overstuffed.
While sausage sandwiches aren't usually the first thing I'd order on a lunch menu, City Sandwich is helping me appreciate them, thanks to a delectable sandwich known as Dave ($8.95).
The Henrique ($8.95) at City Sandwich is a very sexy sandwich.
