So many strange things have happened over the past 12 months that we were practically unfazed to find out that Jersey Shore star DJ Pauly D is launching his own ghost kitchen. But then we saw the promo photos for the delivery-only sub sandwich concept and we changed our minds. This, dear reader, is something you need to see to believe.
The reality TV personality worked with Grubhub and Virtual Dining Concepts (the same folks who brought you Mariah Carey's line of holiday cookies) to launch Pauly D's Italian Subs in "major metropolitan cities across the country." There are seven sandos to choose from, all of which are served with mayo, shredded iceberg, onions, banana peppers and something called "The Drip," which is Pauly D's pet name for dressing.
Pauly D could have easily phoned in this collaboration and opted for a menu of basic subs, but we're delightfully surprised to report that the lineup looks promising. The Pork & Peppers, for instance, layers smoked bacon and ham with gouda, sweet and spicy cherry peppers and brown mustard. The turkey sandwich gets a boost from basil-parmesan pesto, and the Italian is crafted with wine-cured salami. The menu is rounded out with a handful of salads and sides as well as dessert (choose from cannoli or a double fudge brownie).
And then there's the fact that Pauly D is this excited about his new virtual dining concept:
Will the Jersey Shore star's foray into hospitality win any awards? Highly unlikely. Is the concept silly enough to make you pause and smile? Yeah, probably. We'll fist pump to that. To find out if Pauly D's is available for delivery in your city, enter your zip code here.
