Being from Maine, I always prefer to be out in fresh air than sitting in a restaurant, so imagine my joy when I ran across 'wichcraft in Bryant Park on my recent visit (of course this mild winter didn't hurt, so it was warm enough to sit and eat in the park). My partner is a baker, so I've had plenty of sandwiches and breads in my time. The turkey, bacon and avocado on ciabatta with onion relish was, I swear, the best sandwich I've ever had! Followed by a fresh chocolate with chocolate ganache cream'wiche - I was so happy that I went back the next day and had the tomato with parmesan soup and grilled cheese. Again, delicious! Got another turkey sandwich for on the train home the next day, and a variety of the cream'wiches. The chocolate was best, the chocolate chip a bit crispy, and I'm not a fan of almond. Service was quick and very friendly. I thought the prices were very reasonable as well. I would definitely go back!

Recently had a bagel there, and the bagels taste like they just came out from a bagel shop oven. One of the best bagels I ever had in NYC.

i was on a visit in nyc on business and came across the wichraft on 8th and broadway. living in germany and getting around in europe alot, as well as being in the food and restaurant industry i somehow have the feeling i know a little bit and have seen a lot. i was on a lunch break and tried two sandwiches and my partner as well and we loved the sicilian tuna on the greens and the truffled cheese sandwich as weel as the pork and beef sandwiches. the atmosphere was great, the music wonderful and the service was naturally friendly and interested! as soon as i am back in town i will be back!!!

Finally made my way there for the tasty sandwiches. Sitiuated next to craft and craft bar this very nice place serves very interesting sandwiches. Now i heard that the sicilian tuna was good so i tried that. It was excellent. Nice size excellent bread every ingredient was perfect, even though i'm not a black olive fan i kept them in the sandwich anyway. It was $8.00 but worth it. I'll go back...real soon.

There is no sandwich better than the roast pork with the jalapenos. It is awesome.

Beats institutions in the area like Eisenberg's or Defontes. The sandwiches are healthier, cheaper and a lot more tasty! Get the gruyere and cramelized onion on rye.

Slightly expensive, but very well made sandwiches. I am a little disappointed at their beverage selection, though. I feel that it's not diverse enough. Again, taking away the wait, this is a solid lunch or quick snack option if I'm in the area. I wouldn't go out of my way for it, but I suppose nobody would.

Let me first say that I love Craft--I think Colicchio's approach to food is brilliant, but it simply does not transfer to this place. Paying $9.50 for panini that is, at best, mediocre is a waste of money. The chicken sandwich I had was simply lacking in flavor. The service is fairly efficient, considering that a good-size line forms around lunch time. As for the decor, it's rather hideous. You think they could hang a picture on the wall or something. They did get the air-conditioning fixed, so at least you're not sweltering.

Very disappointed in having to pay $4.38 for a soggy oatmeal cookie/strawberry ice cream sandwich that crumbled at the first bite

Spent the weekend in the city - and searched out 'witchcraft to try. It did not meet expectations. The sandwich selection was interesting and diverse - but the execution was poor. I had high hopes for the Pulled Pork Sandwich but the woman behind the counter burnt the bread - and the pork was really dry. We also tried to the Ham/Pear Panini and were equally unimpressed. The services was slow - and the drink selection was poor. On a positive note - my daughter did enjoy the PBJ on nice sourdough bread!
