Picnic on 57

I used to like this place because the price of the food and the type of food they sale, but their is an employ that is extremely friendly. Fuel days I was eating and he used to come to my table asking me personal questions: as if, would I marry him? And that's while I was eating. I am spending more than $10. every day to feed my self.

The "Honesy Roast Turkey Club" sandwich had regular turkey (not honey), bacon that had been sitting out for a while (and subsequently not crisp, unlike the description), regular mayonnaise (as opposed to garlic aoili) and soft sourdough bread (as opposed to toasted). One of these plus a regular bag of chips will run you $10.25. Enjoy, NYC.

My wife & I try to visit NYC about twice a year, and always seek out new places to dine. This year, we planned our Christmas excursion on Dec 4 around the six stores with window displays, and found a website showing a map with the locations spotted. We also used menupages.com to locate the 25 highest rated delis in both midtown East and West, also mapped, to have some choices when we were ready. Our first choice didn't thrill us with their appearance or offerings, so we moved on to Picnic on 57, our next on the list by geography. Boy, were we blown away! I'm not sure why, but the place was virtually empty (about 1 PM). The menu board offered a great selection, and the owner/manager (?) Phillip was most cheerful, helpful and funny. Besides a couple of tables on the first floor, there is a balcony with another 5 tables, and the entire restaurant was SPOTLESS! My wife and I usually split, or at least share many of our meals, and with sandwiches cut in half, we each took a half. Both sandwiches were marvelous, fresh, and very tasty. Phillip even came over as we were leaving to say goodbye and wish us a good stay in NY. As I stated, I'm not sure why, other than being on a side street somewhat off the beaten path, and it was a Saturday, they were not busierPicnic on 57 will definitely remain on our list for future visits!

When I worked up in Westchester and there was only 1 lunch deli for miles in any direction, we used to laugh about how slow it was and how it would be out of business in a week if it were in midtown. Picnic reminded me a lot of that deli; I have no idea how they can be so slow and stay in business. As an aside about the side: the fries that came with my sandwich were not good. Like they forgot to heat up the oil all the way before they tried cooking them. It will be snowing in the Sahara before I go back there.

working in midtown is not easy on the stomach. never bothered to go around the corner on 57th but thank god I did. Picnic on 57th was definitely worth the trip. the owner always greets me with a smile and gives me good tips on the new foods he carries. food is great and now I can finally satisfy my lunchtime appetite.

Normally I do not associate Midtown with good food, let alone food that can comfort me when I'm sick. However, Picnic has changed that. I came in this afternoon feeling awful with a summer cold and ordered the carrot-ginger soup and grilled cheese (came with crispy thin-cut fries). That plus two drinks only came to $12.50 and it all tasted wonderful. I will definitely be back for the high quality and good priced food. The servers were all kind too which is always a plus.

This place is great! Food is delicious and you get value for your money. A sandwhich special for 9.25 includes a HUGE fresh sandwhiches, bottle of h20 and chips. Service was fast, selection was abound. I cannot wait to go back and try someother options.
