A Beloved Neighborhood Institution
E.A.T. remains a quintessential New York eatery. Loved for its overstuffed sandwiches on very thin, very good bread; the iconic “Tower of Bagel”; salads made carefully, in small batches, several times a day; flaky breakfast pastries, jelly doughnuts, New York’s best brownie and thinnest chocolate chip cookie; and freshly roasted coffee. Breakfast, lunch, or dinner finds E.A.T. full of a polyglot mix of locals and tourists all sitting down to their E.A.T. favorites, whether it’s matzo ball soup or a caviar omelet.
