Make Sandwich leaves 4th Avenue, will try again somewhere else

Catching up to a year-end closing on Fourth Avenue ... where Make Sandwich shut down right before Christmas here between 13th Street and 14th Street.

According to the shop's website: "We’ll be closing the shop ... to look for a location that is more suitable for our craft. We’d like to thank you all for your support and sando love."

This area around Union Square seems like a suitable spot for a sandwich place... or maybe there were too many quick-serve options right around here. (Sandwicherie New York arrived on Fourth Avenue at 13th Street shortly after Make's debut, for instance.)

Make, an extension of the Melt Shop brand, opened at 135 Fourth Ave. in January 2017.

H/T Laura!

Bring back Desi Shack. I never went to the very generic looking Sandwiches, which always looked like a temporary sign to me, but was a regular at Desi Shack. You can’t get much better walking traffic than you get this stretch, so the problem is obviously the rent.

I went there once. Turkey sandwich was $10 or so. Frou frou style with not enough turkey. Worth trying once but there was little reason for me to go back. I feel the same way about Beyond Sushi...
