Any reccs? Opinions?
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.
one time ordered in grilled chicken sandwich-blech. Over cooked and dry chicken. May try again. Different item though.
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)
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.
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.
