City Sub, the always-popular sandwich shop that's been on Bergen Street between Fifth and Flatbush Avenues for nearly 30 years, has been shuttered for the past few weeks. They're not closed for good, however; they're just moving into a new location on the same block, according to a sign posted in the front window.
The entire rest of the block from there on up to Flatbush is owned by Michael Pintchik, and while there's a chance that they might be moving into one of those "premium" properties, it seems much more likely that they're moving into the space next door that was last home to restaurant Melt. Not only was the space already a pre-existing restaurant, a new restaurant has been under construction inside it since March.
City Sub is one of the few businesses in the neighborhood that commands a line literally out the door on a near-daily basis, they also have the luxury of closing at 4:30 daily, except for Thursdays, when they're closed all day. Hopefully nothing gets lost in translation during the move; these are some good, old-school deli sandwiches.
Many thanks to reader Adam for sending in the photos.
