For nearly a century, William Poll has been Manhattan's supplier of choice for decadent appetizers, hors d'oeuvres, finger foods and dessert experiences.
Located on the Upper East Side, William Poll has been a famous neighborhood staple since it first opened its doors in 1921, building on New York's reputation for enjoying European-style delicacies. Famous for its glamorous finger sandwiches and canapés, the company quickly built its name on the family recipes of its late co-founder, Christine Poll. Partnering with her husband, and the company's namesake, William Poll, Christine was a pioneer in the gourmet food industry, turning her store into a favorite of customers nationwide and across the globe.
Today, Christine and William's sons, Stanley and James, continue the legacy established by their mother which continues to bring generations of families back for more. The William Poll staff takes pride in crafting foods from scratch. Ranging from finger foods to chicken pot pie and beef bourguignon, they give care to every detail of every dish; quality that this global brand is founded on. Still located on the Upper East Side, even the busiest passers-by have been known to stop and take in the chocolate-dipped meringues and angel cakes beckoning them from the front windows. Once inside, every customer is welcomed by the warmth of large, brass chandeliers that light the intimate interior. While preparing their sandwiches, the staff encourages the customers to sample the dips and favorites of the day. The savvy customers will indulge further and top their visit with William Poll's famously rich brownies or baklava. And the true connoisseur of fine foods will not forget to pick up William Poll's classic: Baked Potato Thins and "Dip Indulgence" for a gourmet midnight snack.Visit Our Online Store
