No. 7 Sub, a casual sandwich shop, made its Manhattan debut from Brooklyn’s Greenpoint location a few years ago on the side of the trendy Ace Hotel. The “mad-scientist” creations are intriguing, tasty and well worth a wait during lunch hour. Where else can you get a sandwich that matches pickled blueberries with ham, red onions muenster and potato chips or tilapia with fried garlic? The flavors mixed together are like a firecracker explosion in your mouth that is yummy and doesn’t burn. If you think you don’t like tofu, ironically, this non heavily Asian menu will change that. The sweeter sauce mixed with the jalapeno is a fantastic pairing. I wish I could get a whole order of this tofu and lose the bread it is so good. The broccoli sandwich, however,is a whole other story. Obviously, broccoli sandwiches are unique and not sprouting up all over, so this this veggie paired with the lychee, ricotta salata and pine nuts can blow you carnivores away. I recommend splitting two sandwiches with a friend because you’ll never be able to pick just one.
Treat yourself with any sandwich and don’t look back – these toasted sandys are good and a refreshing change from a typical turkey and mustard sandwich from your local deli. The only problem is the bread is a little too thick and overpowering that it’s better to just use one piece for each half. Also, No. 7 Sub uses a lot of different spreads and mayos, so if you aren’t saucy kind of gal ask for it on the side so you can dress your own. All sandwiches are a measly $9 and made on Caputo’s white bread which is baked daily in Caroll Gardens, Brooklyn. No. 7 Sub makes lunch fun again!
***Tip: Delivery is available Monday – Saturday from 2 p.m. – 7 p.m. and is closed Sundays. However, the Greenpoint location is open 7 days a week until 11 p.m.
