Roast Beef, Mozarella and Fried Eggplant
From The Good Fork and Fort Defiance to Red Hook Lobster Pound and Hope & Anchor, Red Hook has gotten its fair share of new dining establishments over the past decade, but if you’re gonna make the trek all the way down there, you have to hit up Defonte’s, a decades-old sandwich shop on the ground level of a two-toned green building. You can’t really go wrong with anything on the menu, but it’s hard to beat a giant sandwich featuring perfectly cooked roast beef, mozzarella cheese made right on the premises, and some very thin slices of fried eggplant, all coated in the meat’s natural juices.
