Fried chicken sandwich at Van Horn Sandwich Shop
Carroll Gardens
Southern comfort food continues its takeover of Brooklyn at this Dixieland-inspired sandwich shop and bar. Chef Rick Hauchman (Roberta's, the Commodore) uses ingredients from Kings County purveyors, including Caputo's Bakery and Paisanos Meat Market, to build his between-the-bread creations. Tuck into down-home favorites such as smoked pulled pork and buttermilk fried chicken with jalapeño-cabbage slaw, or try more artery-friendly riffs like the Sweet PLT (a vegetarian BLT). The casual 30-seat spot—featuring an old tin ceiling, exposed-brick walls and photos of Oklahoma oil fields—pulls double duty as a laid-back saloon, serving craft suds on drafts (Kelso, Peak Organic), cheap domestic cans (Bud tall boys), wine and seasonal cocktails.
