Last week, we found out that E&E Grill House (on 49th btw. B’way+8th) would be offering all of their lunch-time sandwiches for $9 on Mondays. Since we liked their candied bacon BLT and house made potato chips, we were eager to try their other, pricier sandwiches for the $9 special.
They are indeed pricey for what are seeming sandwich commodities — a grilled chicken with avocado for $12, a cheeseburger for $13, a steak sandwich for $14 and even that BLT, delicious but dear at $11. Whats-more, is that there’s nothing particularly groundbreaking or sexy about the sandwiches to justify that price, and perhaps the most provocative thing that’s happening at E&E Grill House are the Broadway stars that supposedly frequent the place, which they vaingloriously promote on twitter . But we can get behind their effort at making the sandwiches more accessible, and we can also get behind their steak sandwich Monday lunch special.
