  1. When the Lenny's opened on 23rd I asked the same and got no response.

    He is what I think after a number of visits. Always get the sub. It is made on a soft roll that has enough bite to hold up to a full sandwich, and it is only a dollar more than the same sandwich on bread or a roll, but more than 2x the size - probably enough for two.

    The "thanksgiving on a bun" sandwich isn't very good. Nothing has a strong flavor.

    I like the roasted turkey/corned beef combo with coleslaw, swiss and russian dressing (H4, I think). Good flavor and healthier than your average corned beef sandwich by replacing some of the corned beef w/turkey.

      Turkey, Genoa Salami, red onion, capers, provalone, oil and balsmic. Yummy.

    2. one time ordered in grilled chicken sandwich-blech. Over cooked and dry chicken. May try again. Different item though.

      1. inferior ingredients, barely passable food. better than subway.

          I go there all the time for lunch. You can easily get a bad, dry sandwich there...

          I would definetely go for the specialty sandwiches. Even though they are expensive- they're really good, especially the grilled ones. My personal favorite is H4: Turkey, Corned Beef, Cole Slaw, Russian Dressing on Rye... and it's grilled.

          You can definetely get better, cheaper sandwiches in the city- but if there's a Lenny's near where you work, it's a good place to go for lunch. (There's a much longer post about Lenny's on my Midtown Lunch Blog)

          1. I think the Bacon egg and cheese on a roll from Lennys are great. Also, their delivery is FAST! Sometimes 15 minutes, tops.

            The sandwiches are okay.

            1. I LOVE Lenny's. Tuna, chedder cheese, tomato, toasted wheat bread. It's the perfect size, and tuna is delicious.

                1. Lenny's is great. As a previous poster mentioned, get the sub...it's the largest sandwich you'll see in Manhattan!

                  My favs are:
                  the #1 special (that corned beef with coleslaw and pastrami) on the roll, and;
                  the Chickavo (chicken breast, AVOCADO, ranch dressing (more of a mayo maybe?), plus I add mozzarella and subtract the red peppers. Oozing hot goodness! Reminds my flatmates and me of sandwiches you'd find out in Calif (where we're from).

                  From their cold pre-made salads, I like to get - in the same container! - a little bit of their soy tofu and the avocado with that vinegary dressing (it comes with tomatos too but I usually tell them nicely that I just want the avo.) Love that combo.
