Upscale, Fast Casual Dining Powerhouse with House-Crafted Menu Now Open

/PRNewswire/ — Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop, a national sandwich brand known for its award-winning, hand crafted cheese steaks. Turkey subs, and more, will debut a new location in Manhattan at 1711 2nd Avenue on May 24. Capriotti’s brings the Upper East Side a 45-year tradition of handmade sandwiches that includes slow-roasting whole, all-natural turkeys in-house and hand-pulling them every morning.

Capriotti’s is known for its wide array of sandwiches including The Bobbie, made with our fresh oven-roasted turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing and mayo, the Capastrami, made with hot pastrami, Swiss cheese, Russian dressing and homemade coleslaw and the cheesesteak is made with premium steak, chicken or Impossible plant-based meat and melted cheese plus hot or sweet peppers. The location will offer a convenient order-ahead option, in addition to third-party delivery services. The new shop will bring 20 new jobs to the Manhattan community.

The new Capriotti’s store is owned and family operated by Ashok and Mallika Israni and their son Krishna Israni, who moved to the U.S. with their family from west Africa 20 years ago. Prior to Krishna attending medical school, the Isranis lived in Las Vegas, where they were first introduced to Capriotti’s. Ashok has owned several businesses throughout Krishna’s life and Krishna has always had a passion for helping his dad operate the family businesses. Ashok wanted his son to have the opportunity to pursue an education and promised Krishna they could open a business together again in the future. Ten years later, that’s exactly what they did. Krishna is a local physician and has been a business owner with his dad for over a year now. This is their first Capriotti’s, with plans to expand in the future.

“We’re excited to make Capriotti’s available to Manhattan residents,” said Krishna. “Whether someone is vegetarian or a meat-lover, there are options for everyone, which is why we love what Capriotti’s has to offer. The food is fresh and delicious and we can’t wait for everyone to experience it for themselves.”
