Defonte's
261 Third Ave.
This sandwich shop has been serving Red Hook since 1922, and now its Gramercy outpost brings killer heroes to Manhattan. Defonte's is famous for their fried eggplant, which is sliced super-thin and fried in a light, savory, zeppole-like batter. Try 'em on a hot roast beef hero with fresh mozzarella and a few ladlefuls of jus ($9.75) for a sandwich that tastes even greater than the sum of its parts.
