There are hundreds of specialty sandwich shops in NYC, and many of them will deliver catering to you at work. So if your office craves Greek gyros with a flurry of toppings, you can get that for your company lunch. If your clients demand a delectable smoked duck sandwich, your ezCater app can deliver the goods. Whether you want the molten ooze of paninis or a dozen pretty box lunches, we’ve got some of the best restaurants catering sandwiches to NYC offices.
1. Cafe Basil Catering (E. 52nd St., New York)
The scrumptious paninis at Cafe Basil Catering are some of the best in NYC. They’re sure to be a hit at your next meeting. The crispy, gooey chicken cutlet paninis get a swipe of herb mayo, and the focaccia roll it comes on is about as airy as you want. Vegetarians will throw themselves at the fried eggplant and mozzarella paninis.
2. Delectica (3rd Ave., New York)
Delectica has been committed to its health-forward restaurant concept for years. The restaurant is a fave for catering because its sandwiches have as much attitude as NYC. The ingredients of the goat cheese sandwich simply meld together: creamy goat cheese, smoky eggplant, sweet roasted peppers, and tart balsamic vinegar. The smoked mozzarella and artichoke sandwich sings.
3. Pick a Bagel (Lexington Ave., New York)
Pick a Bagel is a wonderland of bagels and spreads. For those who love the irresistible chew of a bagel, the restaurant’s signature sandwich platter rivals some of the best in NYC. The sandwiches feature creamy fillings, like egg salad, scooped between two perfect bagel slices. Sandwiches can be made with breads and wraps, too.
4. Bagel Cafe & Catering (3rd Ave., New York)
Many people would happily eat bread for every meal of the day. But some can’t—even when a soft Parker House roll is within reach. If you’re catering for those on a gluten-free diet, don’t shy away from NYC’s Bagel Cafe & Catering. Its catering menu stars gluten-free sandwiches with a variety of toppings. Order a mix of gluten-free, vegetarian, and standard sandwich box lunches to satisfy everyone.
5. Pitas & Sticks Catering (9th St., Brooklyn)
NYC’s Pitas & Sticks Catering is a match made in heaven for those who want sandwiches with more meat, less bread. The restaurant has basically deconstructed the sandwich. Order up a round of juicy meat and seafood “sticks.” The tantalizing skewers come with warm pita bread on the side, so you can focus on golden-brown meats.
6. Driggs Finest Deli (Driggs Ave., Brooklyn)
If you need a deep selection of sandwiches, Driggs Finest Deli covers everything from A to Z. With over 50 sandwiches (and a few sandwich-like contenders), including a steak-forward “Wall Street” sandwich, you’re bound to make everyone happy.
7. Market Crates (W. 33th St., New York)
If you’re catering a meeting for busy prospects, your best bet is to go with the stylish sandwich box lunches from NYC’s Market Crates. The portable boxes can be carried away after a sales pitch, just in case someone can’t beat the clock for a speedy lunch. With an artisanal and organic focus, the restaurant crafts stunning sandwiches layered with ingredients like figs and brie on seeded bread. The food is almost too pretty to eat.
8. Ess-a-Bagel (3rd Ave., New York)
The busy NYC bagel shop and catering service Ess-a-Bagel cranks out tons of bagels and sandwiches every day. You should absolutely order their fat, oven-fresh bagel sandwiches loaded high with spreads and fillings. Choose from nearly three dozen sandwiches.
9. Wrap & Roll Grill (3rd Ave., New York)
You might not be able to fly to Greece with your team, but you can definitely have gyros catered for your office. At Wrap & Roll Grill, flavorful chunks of lamb and chicken are loaded into warm flatbread and doctored with delicious, garlicky sauce.
10. Lamazou (3rd Ave., New York)
Formerly a cheese shop, Lamazou is now a swanky deli of artisan meats, cheeses, and breads. Impress clients with their delicious smoked duck sandwich, with slices of buttery brie cheese and pickled cornichons. Eaters covet the stately Lamoretti sandwich made with thinly shaved with roast beef.
