Creator of the foie gras Fluffernutter opening Lord Hamm's on East 3rd Street



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.

Oh no, sir, no cancer here! We just serve "healthy" food that doesn't cause climate change and doesn't abuse animals. No sir!

His "brainstorms" sound Godawful. Just sayin'.

I would encourage anyone who eats foie gras to watch some you tube videos of geese being force fed. I'm sure there are die-hards who this wouldn't touch, but for the average person it is horrific. I wish him luck in his new place, but I hope he leaves the foie gras on Park Ave!

They could fart on a bun and the foodies would wait in line all day to eat one. Get 'em while they're hot! FartBuns!™

Foie Gras is where I draw the line. Ursula Lux is correct. It's revolting to watch.

This is a joke, right? Like the gestations bar for pregnant women? I'd like to see the owners use their own bodies to produce the foie gras. Sadists.

Faux Gras®, however, is welcome.
