Today’s news:

Umm, umm good!

Brooklyn Daily


Need a good hot sandwich for lunch, complete with a little entertainment? Come to Potbelly Sandwich Shop. The Chicago eatery that has taken New York by storm — not to be confused with Hurricane Sandy — opened its first-ever restaurant in our very, very posh Downtown neighborhood on Oct. 16, right across from the courts. Not only will the food be good, but with all those lawyers and judges, there will be lots of drama and entertainment. Potbelly makes tasty warm sandwiches, hand-dipped shakes, tasty made-to-order salads, and does it all with a friendly lively staff. Just ask manager Melonee Gilchrist.

Melonee, who has been with the company since 2011, is happy to be in her home borough and serving terrific fare.

“I’ve lived here for more than 20 years and the development of the area has been dramatic, which we are proud to be a part of. Our neighborhood has truly embraced Potbelly Sandwich Shop,” Melonee told Standing O.

Come on down Monday through Saturday from 11 am to 9 pm and on Sundays from 11 am to 7 pm. If you can’t get out to grab a bite, Melonee will have someone deliver it — at least Mondays through Fridays from 11 am to about 8 pm. So what are you waiting for, the line is already a mile long!

Potbelly Sandwich Shop [345 Adams St. at Pearl Street in Downtown, (212) 897–1872].
