Say goodbye to the Williamsburg outpost of Bunk Sandwiches, a Portland-based restaurant known for its creative, casual fare. The restaurant at 740 Driggs Ave., at South 2nd Street, first opened in New York in November 2015. It was the first location outside of Oregon, and just last month, they reopened after renovating the space to look more like the originals on the West Coast.
The restaurant was received well by local critics for sandwiches like the tuna melt and a burnt broccoli with garlic and chiles sandwich. When it recently reopened, it debuted a longer menu with rotating specials like hot honey fried chicken sandwiches and cheesesteaks. A note on the front of the door notes that the owners will be looking for other spaces to reopen the restaurant.
Here’s a look at the full note, and stay tuned for more information as it becomes available:
It’s been our pleasure to serve you sandwiches since we opened our doors in November of 2015. We’ve made the decision to cease operations here in Williamsburg while we explore opening in another NYC location. We are truly grateful for your business and hope to see you again soon in our next phase.
