curious to know what others think of this mostly takeout lunch place on broad next to the NYSE...i must say i've been quite impressed.
you can get in, grab a sandwich, drink and dessert, pay and get out in under 5 minutes.
the ready made sandwiches are, surprisingly enough, usually quite good, esp. the thai chicken. my only complaint re: the sandwiches is too many are w/mayo or mayo-based sauches.
they also have great rosemary potato chips and quite good mini key lime pies.
finally, they have very good iced tea - fresh brewed and unsweetened...a rarity in the area...
i hear this british chain has plans for 40-odd stores in the metro area.
re: iron frank
i tried the new quizno's downtown and it was terrible.
i got the 'black angus' sirloin sub -- overcooked dry beef w/cheez whiz. no onions or mushrooms, and it had this cloyingly sweet sauce all over it. in fact, i threw 80% of it out.
would be curious to know which sandwiches are good there...
There's one in downtown Bklyn, where I work, and their claim to fame down here is that after 3 or 3:30, the salads are 2 for 1. They don't look all that impressive, nor do the sandwiches...
Frankly, there are delis around here that make good sandwiches, why go to a soul-less chain.
I miss my Brisket House...sniff...weep...weep...
I agree with you. I love this place and also it's so close to my office on Broad St. I can run in, grab a sandwich or a salad and pay in about five minutes.
And they claim their food is natural (organic), is that right ?
Regardless, it taste pretty good, no wonder it's always crowded, those people from Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, and NYSE just can't have enough of PRET
It's *all* about the key lime pie.
