There is nothing about E.A.T. to justify their absolutely absurd prices. I wouldn't mind paying $25 for a sandwich that merited that price, but their food is just pretty good, not great.

If you're okay with paying $24 for a chicken pot pie or $18 for a salad, go here. Otherwise, look elsewhere. This place is ridiculously overpriced.

The quality and freshness of the food at this place is utterly amazing. If you know good food you WILL love this place. Incredible cakes, incredible bread, delicious jams, and great sandwiches as well.... my food critic mom even loved this place. One downfall- it can be overpriced. The gelato is just as good as the gelato I had in Florence ,Italy. It costs $6 for a tiny cup but.... worth it once in a while! If you eat here you will not be disappointed. Just be prepared for the bill.

I went to this restaurant this week with a good friend who recommended EAT. The dishes we ordered were delicious. I have pretty much stopped going out to eat because resturants have not impressed me with the portions of food and quality. After eating here I am dying to go back soon it was so good. The quiche was to die for and served with a huge salad, honestly I am a great cook but do not think I could replicate this dish it was so unique . I loved the potato pancakes they were made to order, crispy on the outside and soft on the inside and they were served with homemade apple sauce. Definitely check this out when you are in the area. Its a bit pricey but so worth it.

My husband and I stopped in here for lunch before going to the Met, and were shocked that a chicken salad sandwich cost $18. If we weren't so desperate for food at that point, I'm sure we would have moved on to another place, but we figured the quality would be very good. It wasn't. The chicken salad was very basic, on wheat bread with no lettuce or tomato (although there was a very small salad on the side, and a dollop of potato salad) with the crusts cut off. Lunch for the two of us cost $60. Ridiculous. And the sandwich was so bland I had to ask for mustard.

Nothing special about the food, pastries, or service that would justify the price. The coffee is robust, rich, and delicious. It's the only reason to stop in, but now that has even increased to $2.50. Get the coffee and eat elasewhere. As a restauranteur I have no idea how they can justify those prices for such avg food.

Eli, if you are reading please help! overpriced, but without the quality one might have expected from an Eli Zabar establishment. huge staff turnover, which means 2 things to me: bad place to work and green, inexperienced and unhelpful staff.
