John’s Hero King 

About

This outpost of the Bensonhurst original is the next best thing to going to Brooklyn to eat a gigantic Italian hero sandwich. The signature item is the homemade roast beef hero on a toasted loaf of fresh ,chewy bread with multiple slices of beef, melted “mutz” (mozzarella), grilled onions and black gravy also known as midnight sauce (a secret blend). There’s daily special : Monday is pastrami and Swiss with spicy mustard and Friday is calamari parmigiana. There’s an all day breakfast menu, hearty pasta dishes and Sicilian rice balls stuffed with chopped pistachios in cream sauce, sausage and peppers and stewed broccoli rabe with garlic and pepper flakes. Sandwiches are huge but if you save room, there are luscious cannoli.
