The legendary Red Hook hero shop—passed down through two generations—served Italian subs to longshoremen beginning in 1922. Grandson Nick Defonte runs this Manhattan branch, which caters to a daily crush of midtown lunchers with a menu of signature sandwiches both hot (roast beef with fresh mozzarella and fried eggplant) and cold (tuna with arugula and black olives).
