Edith’s Sandwich Counter
20 Best Restaurants in Williamsburg
495 Lorimer Street
Elyssa Heller’s sandwich pop-up, which launched within Paulie Gee’s pizzeria and gained acclaim for its excellent bagel constructions, spun off into a skinny Jewish deli sandwich concept this past spring called Edith’s (not to be confused with the legendary now-closed Williamsburg bar of the same name), planting its flag on Lorimer Street. Come by to pick up sandwiches built from bagels, house-baked rye and challah, or pita, packed with smoked salmon and heirloom tomatoes, chicken schnitzel, or go classic with house-smoked brisket pastrami, fermented sauerkraut, Emmental, and special sauce.

New to the pandemic dining scene is Edith’s, a pop-up housed at Paulie Gee’s pizzeria (that wood-fired pizza oven is perfect for bagels) that churns out toasty, Montreal-style bagels that often sell out before lunchtime. The poppy or sesame seed coated bagels are twisted all the way around for optimal crunch in each bite, and truly satisfying on their own, or in a sandwich with bacon, egg, cheese, and special ingredient, a latke.
How to order: Walk up to the ordering window, Thursdays-Sundays, 9am until bagels run out
