Great although the Brooklyn one is better
By bc961 on 3/24/2010
So, I decided to write a comment because the previous person was a vegetarian who didn't like cheesecake, so I thought their review almost shouldn't count. I've been to the original Brooklyn Junior's many times, and this midtown one is enjoyable too, and it's conveniently around many Broadway shows. The purpose of going to Junior's would probably be for 1. the cheesecake 2. the pastrami/meat sandwiches. It's usually pretty busy since it's in midtown, but I believe it's worth it.
Okay but not great

I wish I were a fan of cheesecake, because I've heard it's fantastic here. The food I ate wasn't fantastic by any means, but it wasn't horrible either. Our waiter was pleasant and attentive, although the service was very slow. We were also there at a very busy time - 11:15 on a Sunday morning - and there was a wait by the time we were seated. The dill pickles and pickled beets they give you to eat while waiting for your food are quite unusual, but unique. There was a large selection of sandwiches (some very unique) on the menu, but I'm a vegetarian and there were few vegetarian sandwich choices. I settled for a salad and onion soup, which wasn't great but it was good. My boyfriend's hamburger and fries were greasy and subpar. However, we didn't have a horrible experience here. I probably wouldn't return, only because it wasn't one of my favorite places and I had a limited selection of vegetarian items. For people who eat meat, the menu would probably be more appealing.
