WHY Superb and generous ten-inch Italian subs made before your eyes on fresh bread. While you’re there, pick up some prosciutto, burrata and delicious, cheap homemade marinara sauce to take home.
WHAT Every day around 11:30, the crowds start to gather at the long glass deli case, waiting to place their order for one of the famous subs. (It looks like total chaos, but there is a system, so take a number.) Pastas are so-so, pizzas aren’t bad, but it’s the sandwiches you come for, especially the prosciutto, the lemon turkey, the meatball and the chicken parmigiana. They’re as good as the best in Brooklyn. Really.
WHO Hungry working men, most of whom take the sandwiches out, because the seating is limited.
