Defonte’s Soon To Open In Staten Island

After the sudden move of the beloved sandwich shop in Manhattan, the Defonte’s family has decided to open up shop in Staten Island! The sandwich shop which retreated to Red Hook after the Manhattan building where the outpost was located was bought by a developer, will be opening their second location this Sunday at 95 Water Street, Stapleton, Staten Island. Owner Nicholas Defonte recently stated that the Stapleton neighborhood, “reminded me a little bit of Red Hook many years ago before it got built up as it is now.”

The original sub shop opened in 1922 and hasn’t really undergone any drastic changes since. The menu will be almost identical to the Red Hook shop, and the bread used to make the massive sub sandwiches will still be delivered daily to the new outpost.
