Zito's Opening New Location in Bay Ridge

It's been exactly four months since Zito's closed the original location of their Italian sandwich shop, on Seventh Avenue between Seventh and Eighth Streets, and owners Marcello Bucca and Enzo Conigliaro have made their next move: they're making a homecoming of sorts, and opening in Bay Ridge.

The owners grew up in Bensonhurst, and modeled the shop, which has another location on Fifth, on the South Brooklyn sandwich shops of their youth. In a Tweet last night they announced that the new location will be opening in a little over a week, at 7604 3rd Avenue, near the corner of 76th Street.

I reached out to Bucca, and he told me that the food menu will be the same, but there will be a whole lot of new perks: they'll be open until 2 AM on weekends, they're serving Stumptown coffee, and beer will be a major emphasis. A whopping 75 beers will be available by the bottle, with six rotating taps. Growlers and quarts will be available to-go, and they'll let you fill your own six-pack with bottles for $25 to stay, $20 to go. There will be two Happy Hours with $4 drafts from open- 5 PM and for the last hour before close, and they'll be offering all-you-can-drink Narragansett for $15 during the day. There will also be four televisions showing soccer.

Bay Ridge is in for a real treat!

Loved their Eggplant Parm hero for 10 bucks--the best deal in the Slope.
But what everyone should know--Sunday afternoon at their Fifth Avenue place is great for watching football and other televised sports. They got a large TV and five beers on tap. I know that that is not a large beer selection but no one goes there at that time. It is like you are at your own private bar.
And Patrick and Antonio are great bar tenders.
It is certainly better than that zoo over at 200 Fifth, right across the street.

Bay Ridge has several "real" treats - the shops that inspired Zito's. Here's hoping this isn't an ominous sign for the Ridge.
