I had one of the falafel sandwiches and thought they were hearty and delicious. I highly recommend this place.

Food is good and fresh, Sitting is very tight, there are tables for 4 but the they are designed only 2 people can sit and eat, Can of coke for $2.00. That is ourageous.

I work across the street and have eaten here a few times. I agree with everything the other reviews have said... a welcome addition to the "culinary wasteland" that is Midtown East, delicious (if pricey) food, and a refreshing lean toward healthy ingredients. My own two cents, though: the name and menu are deceiving. It took weeks for me to check out this place because I assumed it was yet aNOTHer terrible salad bar joint. And I really don't think it's clear enough that the sandwiches are jazzed-up falafel sandwiches. I don't think it would be redundant to say "falafel" in the description for each. And lastly, even though the 'handbag' packaging is cute and innovative, it *still* won't prevent you from getting covered in sandwich [drop]pings as you hastily enjoy your delicious meal. On behalf of my tahini-covered pants (which looks really cute at the office....), consider this a warning.

For a "meat & potatoes" guy, I found the food to be pleasantly decent. It's a nice break from the ordinary stuff around the area. Not sure it would be one of my regular places though, perhaps once in a while. The place is usually pretty busy during lunch hours, I would recommend "take-out" as the place is small and long lines tend to form. The prices are quite high especially considering what you are really getting, but it is sort of expected considering where they are located.

I reviewed Crisp weeks ago here, but they recently started making Organic Iced Coffee which is out of this world - now it's an everyday stop, sometimes twice a day.

Crisp was a great addition for the Midtown lunch crowd. The handbag sandwiches, particularly the Mexican, are delicious and the service is great. The only complaint with Crisp is that they don't share the nutritional information for their products. For a place that touts only healthy choices, it's a bit disappointing that this information is not available on the website or by request. That said, I would never have wondered just how fattening the products were if they weren't so tasty, so its still a good pick for the area.

The food at this new place on the corner is really fresh and delicious, great for vegetarians. The Crisp falafel is good and filling, while the other kinds of special falafels are interesting to try. The sitting area is great because there's plenty of street view from the glass walls, and the staff is extremely friendly.
