Chef Tyler Kord of the much-beloved No. 7 in Fort Greene is back in Brooklyn, this time with a collection of off-the-wall subs at the newest location of No. 7 Sub. Along with Chef de Cuisine Ryan Reynolds (not, we assume, THAT Ryan Reynolds) and partners Matthew Maddy and Ian Sugarman (of Weather Up Tribeca), the Greenpoint spot serves up sandwiches with a healthy helping of panache that you won’t find at Subway, or anywhere else on the planet.
Kord has been around the fine dining block, including a stint as the sous chef at Perry St. These days, he’s known for his original, irreverent dishes, like the Turkey & Goose Meatloaf on the menu at No. 7, served with “soft boiled fried egg, rice noodles, awesome broth, and giardiniera.” As Tasting Table noted, “…the chef dodges Brooklyn’s comfort-food bullet with a menu that will never know a meatball”.
What No. 7 does with entrees and salads, No. 7 Sub does with sandwiches. They’re known for their crazy genius concoctions, like Bologna with Brussels Sprouts, Vindaloo Mayo, and Pickled Red Onion. Ever had a cauliflower sandwich? At No. 7 Sub, you can get one topped with potato chips, scallions, raisins, and smoked French dressing. The Filet-O-Fish almost magically mimics the flavor profile of the McDonald’s version with an unlikely trio of toppings – horseradish refried beans, muenster, pico de lettuce. Even the vegans aren’t left out–there’s a Fried Broccoli sub with marinara, olives, and banana peppers. As Kord told Grub Street:
“I feel like there’s probably never been an occasion when a vegan person gets to eat a super Italian sub.”
In addition to killer subs served on fresh bread from Caputo’s Bakery in Carroll Gardens, the restaurant will serve specialty cocktails like a Screwdriver made with Cara Cara oranges, Tito’s Vodka, and clementines, or the “Srirachacha” made with, you guessed it, Sriracha (along with a little tequila, lime, and maple).
Unlike the small original location in the Ace Hotel, Greenpoint’ No. 7 Sub seats 50 and stays open until 11pm. Just another reason to do your dining in Brooklyn.
