BOERUM HILL — Boomwich, Peter Entner's sandwich operation on Atlantic Avenue, is nearly open. The team tells Eater that it is simply waiting on the city. There will definitely be a cold fried chicken sandwich that riffs on the famous cold fried chicken pie from Pete Zaaz (which Entner has just announced plans to reopen). For a bit more info on the menu, check out what Brooklyn Magazine has to say.[BK Magazine]
