Our History

Our roots are in midtown Manhattan, where Ricky Eisen opened her first eatery in 1979 on 56th Street and Lexington Avenue, serving elevated and healthy fast-casual cuisine. With the mission of changing how people perceived what a fast meal could be, she completely reinvented the market by replacing stale food options with flavorful, wholesome and fresh seasonal meals in store, and bringing the very same food to offices and homes through catering. 

For over four decades, Between The Bread has been providing New Yorkers with sumptuous, rich food that is unmistakable in its quality, creativity and presentation. Whether in catering, events or fresh-casual restaurants, our mission has remained the same: to empower our customers with both quality and choice.
