I'm the one on the left. That's Wilf on the right.

All jokes aside, Bernamoff is going to take a lot of heat if he can't keep up with demand. Unless some strategically timed "shortages" are part of his master plan to milk the media machine.

Good news that the Manhattan Mile End will be counter service only. Noah will not be able to refuse services on the grounds that he is keeping his food for seated customers.

Of course, he could insist on holding it for customers in back of the line.

I suppose this -- mixed with the fact that the name of the place is Mile End SANDWICH -- means that the composed plates will not be available in Manhattan.

Look, if anything is available, we should hang the flags out.

I think you need to interpret what I'm saying in a reasonable way.

To be precise, standing counter service.

Forget about chairs with backs, they don't even have stools.

Via Eater -

The lack of seats in the dining area forces you to eat your sandwich standing up . The only seat in the house was the bathroom. That's not cool. I mean, if it was Gray's Papaya or something other disgusting cheap joint, then I understand why there are no seats. However, I picked up a $18 combo set that came with my smoked meat sandwich, some pickles, and some slaw. That's no cheap dawg that's supposed to be a premium sandwich. It was extremely uncomfortable and instead of focusing on enjoying my dinner, I was constantly thinking about how my tired feet could've used a rest.


More:

THERE WERE NO CHAIRS THERE. We were supposed to take our voluptuous but ridiculously expensive sandwiches and cram them down our digestive cavities in the time we could muster standing at a long ugly beige 'standing table.' The standing table made the experience of eating comfortable only for a maximum of five minutes. Clearly, the intent was for us to fressdown our food and get out of there as soon as possible, freeing up the space for a new cohort of suckers.

Reading those Eater comments, I can only imagine that Sneak has about 35 voice mails and emails from Noah begging him to stop Bond Street asap.

I'm not spending $20 on a sandwich where I can't even sit down.

I heard that after the students in Montreal are done protesting the government's attempt to raise tuition fees to $3.7K a year, they're going to continue their riots to get Schwartz's to cut sandwich prices back to under $6 from an ungodly $6.15 right now.

Momofuku Milk Bar was always like that when it was adjacent to Ssam Bar. Didn't put people off. This Little Piggy and Joe Dough have maybe a couple of stools each; Luke's Lobster Bar not much. This won't be a deal-breaker.

You're probably right, although people might see a difference between standing up when grabbing dessert and standing to eat an expensive sandwich, soup, or whatever else is on the menu. This isn't a $5 slice of pizza you grab on your way home from a bar, although perhaps that's the crowd they're hoping for.

Edit: On the other hand, this is a step up from waiting in line to get food from a truck which, I understand, is all the rage.

Those pieces of the table jutting out look like a lawsuit in waiting. No doubt someone will choke on a pickle while bumping into one of the points.

According to one Eater commenter "the coolest table ever."
