Peanut Butter & Co
Posted by anonymous on 10/17/2007
The peanut butter here rocks, so do all of the sandwiches that I've tried. Favs are Cookie Dough and the Elvis. The only downsides are the not so friendly staff, the fact that they never deliever due to being short staffed (people, its NYC, delivery is key) and the bread isn't always so fresh. I love this place but grow more and more tired of dealing with the service issues. The management needs to get on top of it and pleeease do something about the delivery situation.

After finally finding this place we entered and were immediately disappointed. the place is tiny and crammed to the max with tables. The girl who took our order was unfriendly and unhelpful. Though a PB&J is nostalgic, the prices were not. We had to wait to sit down all the while being in everyone's way. If don't mind spending over 5$ for a sandwich you can make at home and are on the go, then I would recommend this place otherwise spare the children and your wallet!

Being from an urban area that is not completely a polar opposite of NYC, it is always refreshing to discover a place that 'you could only find there!' The atmosphere was a bit smaller and basic than what I collected from the tour guide; however, my peanut butter was especially delicious, which was grilled along with honey, banana and baccon. I also bought a jar of cinamin raison peanut butter for the road, which my family is currently enjoying this very moment.

PB&C was the least crowded of any place we went over the Chrismas holidays...it's off the beaten path, but a great place to get a taste of a less-touristy NYC and fabulous peanut butter. Huge sandwhiches! The lunchbox special was great; PB&J (lots of chocies for both peanut butter and jelly types), chips, and carrot sticks. Peanut butter cookies were very good too...especially dipped in milk. For the non-peanut butter fanatics, their chicken salad sandwhich was great. I highly recommend getting the food to go and heading to Washington Square Park to people and dog watch over a picnic.

But it's good! Sure it's expensive, but where else in can you visit a shop solely devoted to peanut butter? It's fun, the employees are nice and it's a cute little shop. I had the elvis (with the bacon) and loved it. Not that i would visit every week because i can't afford to, but have fun and go. The price is worth the experience, and i've paid a lot more for less.

Peanut butter may be my favorite food on the entire planet; I put it on everything from my jelly sandwiches to pierogies to cereal, and it never fails to satisfy both my hunger and my palate. Peanut Butter& Co. definitely did the trick: I had their cinnamon raisin swirl peanut butter with the vanilla cream cheese and apple slices on giant pieces of whole wheat bread. It was certainly delectable, even for the rather high price, and I was intrigued by the other flavors which I would have sampled had I enough dough to support them. However, I've come to the conclusion that it's quite simple to make even the peanut butter at home, as I am always mixing in cinammon and chocolate; I've yet to try white chocolate and hot spices, but they're next in line. Furthermore, what with a description of their sandwiches' contents right on the menu, I may just stick to making my own delightful combinations at home, never forgetting the inspiration, of course :)

The irony of it all is that peanut butter was invented as a cheap source of protein for poor people and prisoners... Peanut Butter and Company is a small shop on Sullivan Street that only serves peanut butter-related dishes. Their sandwiches are interesting (I tried the Spicy Chicken which was very good) and all come with a small bag of Cape Cod Chips and carrot sticks. My associate (with whom I dined) tried the Peanut Butter Sampler, which allows you to have a cup of each of their peanut butter flavors and vegetables and crackers for dipping... That was a good idea and something different. The prices are quite high considering what you get, but their floats and shakes make it a really authentic "old-timey" experience if you're looking for it. They also sell their own brand of peanut butters ($6.00/jar) and some other foods, but they sell them at Food Emporium as well for less money. Overall, this is a cute and interesting place to take friends from out of town who WILL say "A restaurant devoted solely to peanut butter!? Only in New York!" The real deal: "A restaurant devoted solvely to peanut butter!? Only in New York [could they get away with charging $7.00 for a sandwich]!" Definitely worth a visit!
