Hecho en Dumbo

354 Bowery, nr. E. 4th st., NYC

Hecho en Dumbo used to be located -- guess where -- in Dumbo, at the Dumbo General Store (also a Want destination, I think,) but it has moved to the Bowery and added some things to the menu. Their tortillas and salsas are homemade, their cocktails sound really good, and they're adding a Mexican brunch menu. Things I want to try: picaditas de jaiba (corn masa topped with crabmeat); verduras en vinagre; house-smoked swordfish tacos.

No. 7 Sub

1188 Broadway btwn 28th & 29th

No. 7 Sub is the new sub shop in the Ace Hotel. The above sandwich is an eggplant parmesan... with squash puree! And barbecue potato chips! Sign me up. Also of interest: ceviche sub; General Tso's tofu sub; tuna salad sub with PICKLED BEETS; a handsome braised lamb sub. I'm down for whatever as long as it's encased by bread.
