Kurt's Flatiron Faves - No. 7 Sub

Last week, we went north from Beecher’s to The John Dory Oyster Bar in the Ace Hotel on 29th. I think the people behind the Ace must have a handle on what’s good, since the second place on this virtual tour is also part of the Ace, a sandwich shop called No. 7 Sub, just a little south of the Dory itself. 

Like the Oyster Bar, No. 7 Sub is an off-shoot of another New York restaurant, called No. 7 in Fort Greene.  Tyler Kord, the man behind these “No. 7’s,” is known for using interesting ingredients to create multicultural comfort foods. At No. 7 Sub, you can find eggplant parms with jalapeños and BBQ potato chips, ceviche sandwiches, roast beef hoagies with Gouda and pickled blueberries, and more. My favorite has roasted Brussels sprouts, Russian dressing and potato chips in it. Sounds weird, I know, but it is DE-licious.

Although the ingredients come from all over the world, Kord and his partners opened Caputo Bakery in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn to supply bread to No. 7 and No. 7 Sub. It doesn’t get more local than baking all your own bread. Honestly, one sandwich is great, but there are so many interesting flavor combinations that I really recommend going with other people and getting a taste of as many different Kord creations as possible.

Well, it’s time to make our way back to Madison Square Park, where next week I’ll show you around the Danny Meyer burger phenomenon, Shake Shack.

Until then, good eats and good walks!
