Similar to his pie-slinging PeteZaaz in Crown Heights, Peter Entner’s off-the-wall sandwich shop mashes up far-reaching flavors (Asian, Mediterranean) and plays with format. Entner pulls chili from its bowl boundaries and slathers it between two bread slices alongside house-made cream-cheese burrata. “I like to take traditional things and mess them up a bit,” he says. He even transforms customer-favorite slices into sandwiches: The Reubenese smothers pastrami in Chinese mustard, sauerkraut and mozzarella, and the C.F.C. layers chilled fried chicken, curried yellow squash and stewed collard greens with pickled chilis and fontina cheese. 311 Atlantic Ave between Hoyt and Smith Sts, Boerum Hill, Brooklyn (718-643-9229, boomwich.com)
