New kosher subway -- gan eden c'kedem
Today I celebrated with many kosher wall-streeters by toasting Jared with a one-hundred percent rabbinically approved subway sub. It was delicious. The line was long but moved quickly. I want to give my highest recommendation to this newest addition to the kosher-but-tastes-oh-so-treifalicious family of restaurants.

The cross streets and Water and Broad, but I wouldn't recommend that Subway at all. First, as a bit of background I've eaten in other Kosher subways and I understand what they are and aren't supposed to be.
Now, to get to this specific Subway. First of all, the prices are outrageous. A 6" sub costs between $8 and $11 depending on the sub. A footlong costs between $11 and $17. If you want soy cheese that's an extra $1-2. For that price you get a tiny amount meat and a smattering of rather pathetic looking vegetables. The lettuce looked like it was the scraps from a bag. For a price comparison a 6" Corn Beef sub costs $10, at Essex the Corn Beef sandwich costs $10.50 and comes with a lot more and higher quality meat. I'm tempted to try their meatball sub, but beyond that at their prices/quality I can't recommend Subway over Essex.
I've been there twice now.
I agree Essex is better but:
Location (it's around the corner from my work, while essex is a bit of a schlep).
Speed (as was mentioned before, the line moves fast).
Variety of breads, toppings, meats, etc.
The meat quality isn't terrible - it's no quality deli, but that's not what they're going for
Frankly the biggest negative is price. Both times I went lunch cost me $15. That's just too high for lunch.
Sure the meat is vacuum packed, but that's to be expected.
