Hit Portland sandwich import Bunk Sandwiches quietly closed its Williamsburg location for a few weeks this fall for renovations, and now it’s open again with a bigger menu and mostly counter-style seats. It was a move to "re-capture the inspiration and atmosphere of the original Bunk," which feels more like a classic counter restaurant, according to Giorgio Angelini, the managing partner for the New York outpost. Now, the restaurant only offers two, two-seat tables outside of counter dining. For the menu, owner Tommy Habetz and chef Jake Adams will also be rotating new sandwich specials every week, including a hot honey fried chicken sandwich, a burger, and a cheesesteak. Classics like the pork belly Cubano and meatball parmigiano hero remain.
Bunk opened at 740 Driggs Ave., at South 2nd Street, last year, marking the first time the cheap eats darling had a location outside of Portland, Oregon. It’s been reviewed favorably by local critics, too, for both sandwiches and sides like burnt broccoli with garlic and chiles. Eater critic Robert Sietsema particularly enjoyed vegetarian selections and the tuna melt. Check out the menu below, and let us know what you think if you stop by.
