Making healthier lunch-time choices now tastes good? Forget ??Subway?, this more sophisticated, European-style chain eatery offers fresh, tossed-to-order salads, exotic flatbread sandwiches, wraps, flatbread pizza, soups, fruit/yogurt cups, desserts, and an impressive smoothie and coffee bar, with a focus on gourmet quality that is appealing to the health and ingredient conscious.

Modeled after a Parisian Caf, replete with a stone-hearth open-flame oven, Cosi??s maroon red decor emanates warmth. It??s the shop??s insight into ingredients that pair well together that makes it stand out. What??s noticeable is the diversity of options and pairings on the menu- there are at least a dozen different types of sandwiches and salads.
You won??t find any American cheese here- how about Brie and Gorgonzola instead?
Where else (for $7.99!) can you get something like their ??Signature Salad?- comprised of
?Mixed greens tossed with red grapes, pears, pistachios, dried cranberries and Gorgonzola. Tossed with sherry shallot vinaigrette?? Their creamy bread pudding is to-die for, and again, rarely served at most common luncheonettes and delis.

While Cosi make look expensive, Cosi??s prices are competitive with those of the standard (and over-priced) delis and deli ??cafes? that populate Manhattan??s lunchtime eateries, with much more seductive recipes and offerings (and even big-name fast-food burger joints these days aren??t that cheap anymore). Sandwiches and salads run about $8. Your health (and taste-buds) are worth it.

God bless the counter guy in the mornings! He's so incredibly cheery that it's disgusting b/4 my morning coffee's had time to kick in. I feel like such a creep b/c I hate everyone in the morning, but this guy makes me wonder if being grouchy in the morning prevents me from being totally cheesy. This spacious restaurant is almost quiet enough in the mornings that you'd hear crickets chirping if NYC had 'em. I couldn't figure out why they don't have a booming breakfast business like surrrounding businesses since they're so close to the subway. Their bagels aren't awesome, but they're pretty decent & the coffee drink menu seems decent. After a few visits to this place, I realized why their breakfast crowd is non-existent. This restaurant is painfully slow. Everytime I've been in there to get breakfast, I've had ample time to get breakfast & make it to work on time. But alas, each & every time, they're slow as molasses & make me late to work every time I give them my business. This morning, despite the lack of customers, they gave me the wrong cream cheese on my bagel, so I had to wait even longer for my meal. Tell me how it can take SOOOOO long when there's 3 employees to their 5 customers total that came in during the time I was there. They must lose $ being open during this time b/c they're so inefficient.

Pros: Alternative to the Corner Deli or Bodega

Cons: Painfully SLOW!

I like Cosi in general. I love this particular Cosi. Decor wise, it is much larger than most other sandwich shops with comfy couches and a large seating area. Service wise, everyone who works here has always been pleasant. However, the bread (that they use to make the sandwiches) at this particular Cosi is unbelievable. The freshly baked bread is so great I find myself contemplating getting everytime I hit Chelsea. Definately worth a try. My favorite is the Tuscan Pesto Chicken.

Editorial from

In Short
Styled to evoke the feel of a Parisian café, the focal point of each restaurant is an open-flame stone oven, which swiftly turns out thin-crust pizzas, made-to-order panini and open-faced melts on Roman-style flat…
