Like this place – Very good place to have your lunch. Nice to have a hot coffee with muffin while checking your emails.
Forget Subway- Cosi redefines lunch... – 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 Café, 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.
