Update September, 2022 ~ Under a new management with the new name S&P (court street grocers) or @Sandplunch, we hear from @vanishingny that the new owners have pretty much kept the integrity of the original Eisenberg’s Sandwich Shop, and expect to open mid September.
We haven’t been in a while ~ a long while. But then, we haven’t been anywhere in quite a long while because of COVID-19. So it was today, with a heavy heart, that we read that the beloved Eisenberg’s Sandwich Shop, which opened in the heart of Ladies Mile in 1929, closed its doors (2021).
Oh, how we love when friends come to visit. It’s our chance to act like a tourist and see the sites through fresh eyes. At the top of our list ~ Ellen’s Stardust Diner, where the show never stops ~ until COVID. Closed due to COVID-19, this popular institution owed over $600,000 in back rent, and if not paid by August 7th, the stardust was to fall & the curtain was to close for good.
Now, with back rent paid, the curtain lifts and Ellen’s Stardust Diner reopened its doors for business on November 16, 2021!
“We are excited to open our doors again and welcome back New Yorkers and tourists to Times Square,” said Scott Barbarino, Artistic Director at Ellen’s Stardust Diner. “Stardust has been a New York City institution for more than 30 years and our hope is that everyone will still be able to enjoy a bit of Broadway with our singing wait staff in this interim before nearby theatres will be able to reopen as well.”
Come along inside during our visits over the years.
