This satellite New American sandwich shop is not in the teeming Ace Hotel as advertised, but just south of the building on Broadway. When you do find it, the tiny white-tiled shop is a busy spot for takeout lunches, with oversize menus lining the dark walls, playfully named avant-garde dishes (“Chris Pratt Is Hooked on a Feeling,” “The Karate Kid”), and glass jars of cellophane-wrapped cookies on the counter. Choose soda or flavored sparkling water from the cooler and savor the monthly sandwich special, or chomp down on the popular “No. 7 Sub Club II,” with slow-roasted pork and crunchy barbecue chips. Ingredients arrive daily from the company’s commissary in Fort Greene, along with white Italian sandwich bread from Brooklyn’s Caputo Bakery. Any selection can be served as a gluten-free bowl — a quinoa salad with amaranth and brown rice — while broccoli tacos, drizzled in a shallot vinaigrette with feta and black-bean hummus, are a vegetarian option showcasing the executive chef’s love for the brassica. Seating in the narrow space is limited to a few bar stools, but customers are welcome to scour the dimly lit (often crowded) Ace Hotel lobby for an open armchair or leather couch, where you can enjoy the hotel bar and free Wi-Fi, plus glimpses into the Breslin’s dining room.
