It was first hinted at a few days ago on Twitter, but I just got confirmation from Zito's Sandwich Shoppe owner Marcello Bucca that they've signed a three year lease to open a 140 square foot sandwich stand on Coney Island, on Jones Walk right near Luna Park. It'll be open in time for Memorial Day Weekend, and will stay open through the summer, until Labor Day.
"We're thrilled to be a part of Coney Island and all that it stands for," said Bucca. "It's Brooklyn at its best."
The 8'x17' concession stand will look like a miniature version of their extremely popular Italian sandwich shop, which opened last summer on Seventh Avenue between Seventh and Eighth Streets. The menu will be "streamlined," according to Bucca.
"We're really, really excited about this," added Bucca. "We're just happy to be a part of it."
