Deep in Red Hook, Brooklyn NYC, proudly stands Defonte’s a third generation sandwich joint. Adorning the walls are photos of the owner with cast members from every mobster film you’ve ever watched.
October’s True Believer Rewards special, The Smokey Joe, is our homage to Defontes – a take on a Sloppy Joe.
We smoke a blend of Chuck, Rib and Brisket then slow cook it with peppers, onions and a secret sauce, before topping with smoked applewood cheese, Texas Toothpicks and stuffing between a toasted buttered brioche bun. Throw in a side of Tater Tots and buddabing buddaboom.
Available to True Believer Rewards cardholders for 9.95 from Tuesday 6th October for the rest of the month.
Check out some photos below from when we visited Defonte’s on last year’s Pilgrimage.
