A Wilensky's egg cream, like pretty much everything Wilensky's Light Lunch serves, is greater than the sum of its parts. While the Wilensky's Special garners most of the attention—not undeservedly—patrons sometimes forget that the landmark Mile End lunch counter also doubles as a soda fountain. One that's been making its own syrups and mixing its drinks by hand, in its own inimitable way, since 1932.
