First a Williamsburg filmmaker paid tribute to Annie Hall, and now a Williamsburg sandwich maker is doing the same.
At Drive In Sandwiches, which opened yesterday at 690 Metropolitan Avenue, the Annie Hall consists of pastrami, swiss, tomatoes, onions, and homemade slaw on a baguette. Other “feature presentations” (i.e. specialty sandwiches) are named after classics like The Hangover, Down By Law, and Three Amigos.
Naz, the co-owner of Drive In, said she and her husband, a home cook, started working on the project a couple of years ago. “He loves to cook [whereas] I don’t know how to cook at all. He would always make these amazing meals and my friends would come over.”
Now his sandwiches are available to anyone who walks into their drive-in themed parlor, with its star-studded ceiling and vintage cash register. “It’s a bunch of gourmet sandwiches that he’s been tweaking and working on for the longest time,” says Naz of the menu.
