CHICKEN SALAD ON CHALLAH AT BUTTERFIELD MARKET
The best thing on the Upper East Side after E.A.T. is the Butterfield Gourmet Market. They've been around for almost a century so they certainly know what they're doing. Besides being a mini gourmet supermarket they make fantastic sandwiches either by request or ready-to-go. Their chicken salad on challah with chopped celery and walnuts is one of the best in the city. Sometimes chicken salad gets killed with mayo and you're basically eating a mayo sandwich - not here. There are big chunks of chicken and the walnuts and celery balance very well with the creaminess of the mayonnaise. The pre-packed sandwich comes on a challah roll, but if challah is not your thing, they have a bevy of freshly baked breads to choose from.
