Matt took me to the new fancy sandwich shop in Gramercy –Defonte’s. It was originally a hit in Red Hook and now they have one in Manhattan. Matt and I did a half and half split on The Jerry Lewis (mozzarella, fried eggplant, tomato) and the Pork Hero (hot roast pork, swiss, fried eggplant, hot salad). They are pricey, yet big. I thought I was going to save half for dinner but that didn’t happen. The Pork Hero is more flavorful and a better initial bite. Then the Jerry Lewis makes a comeback at the end. Not unlike the Nutty Professor? …I dunno. Just trying to make some whack reference. I don’t remember how the movie ended. Eddie Murphy turns into the Klumps.
