2017: Brooklyn Voted Defonte’s Sandwich Shop Best Lunch Deal!
Defonte’s Sandwich Shop
379 Columbia Street (718) 625-8052
This famed sandwich shop in the heart of Red Hook takes the cake for best lunch deal in the borough. Known for its large Italian heroes, loaded with ham, provolone, salami, roast beef, mozzarella and fried eggplant, Defonte’s has been slinging sandwiches since the 1920’s – and it shows. Featured in February, 2012 in the hit show “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” as a “long-standing legacy” of the borough, Defonte’s has been collecting accolades for years, and it’s no surprise why.
