Step into the past at EISENBERG'S SANDWICH SHOP, when sandwiches weren't made with faddish ingredients like arugula, pesto, and ciabattas. In 1929, New York City was paved with these places. A lonely presence on this stretch of Fifth Avenue among fast-food emporia and pita palaces, it steadfastly retains the standard lunch menu of soups, sandwiches, and sour pickles. The egg salad is creamy and clean-tasting, and only slightly salty. Order it on rye, and strike a blow for heirloom eating.
