A takeout sandwich shop is expected to open this spring at 226 E. Third St., between Avenue B and Avenue C.
According to New York magazine, who first reported on this opening, proprietor Corey Cova "is an undersung sandwich genius, having served as the opening chef at Earl’s Beer & Cheese, where his brainstorms included Hudson Valley foie gras on Eggo waffles, and mozzarella with dill pickles, miso mayo, and potato chips on Thomas' English muffins."
New York also notes that he "brought the world the scallion-pancake pork taco and the foie gras Fluffernutter."
While the place doesn't have a website yet, there is a Lord Hamm's Twitter account.
No. 226 was previously home to a dry cleaners.
