The best egg cream in New York: Eisenberg's

Yup, I dare to make the claim. Better than Junior's or Gem Spa. Better than the Second Ave or Carnegie deli. I decided today that Eisenberg's Sandwhich Shop makes the best Egg Cream in NYC.

In fact, I want to go beyond that statement. I felt like it was a perfect Egg Cream, as if it was the first time I had ever had a TRUE Egg Cream. As If I could now say, "Ah, so that's what they're all about."

Why would theirs be different from any one else. Everyone uses milk, seltzer, and Fox's U-bets. Maybe it's the chill of their milk. Maybe it's the force of the seltzer spigget combined with the simultaneous stirring of the extra long spoon. Maybe it's the extra dash of vanilla sauce they throw in. Whatever it is, it's magic.

Of course, don't lose focus on their magnificent meatloaf (only on days that start with the letter T) or their Pastrami on rye. Even if you don't need a meal, just sitting on a stool at this deli (that first opened in the last 1920s) to watch the guys working behind the counter is a show in and of itself.

Yes, it was Dave's New Improved Egg Cream. They also made good Lime Rickey's, but it was their egg creams that were terrific. A cartoon of people reaching out of cars to grab egg creams, people drinking them on the street and Dave frantically serving them was posted on a counter. And it was closed for owing taxes.
