Rich Torrisi, Mario Carboneand Jeff Zalaznick signed the lease at 162 North 4th Street almost three years ago. And now, after what feels like an eternity, the guys behind Carbone and Santina just blasted open the doors to the first-ever Brooklyn outpost of their moderately-priced crowd-pleaser, Parm.

The Major Food dudes always add a few location-specific dishes to the menu whenever they open new branches of Parm. This one’s got tortellini with pesto, a veal parm entree, clams Casino, and sliced prime rib with peppers and mushrooms. Jeff Zalaznick tells Eater that fresh pasta will also be made in an open space behind the bar. All the sandwich favorites from the other locations are also available to dine-in or carry-out.

Parm Williamsburg is open Sunday through Thursday from 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m., and on Friday and Saturday from 11:30 p.m. to 12 a.m. No word yet on whether or not images of Sammy the Shrimp and his cartoon friends will grace the windows of this new location. But the space has a big bar, an open kitchen, colorful wallpaper, tiles on the floor, and plenty of booths around the edge of the room. If you happen to stop by this week, please let us know what you think of the brand-spanking new ‘Burg outpost. Check out the full lunch and dinner menu:

Note: An earlier version of this post indicated that sandwiches were not available for dine-in, but they are — they just have a separate menu.
