This photo was sent to me by a reader we’ll call “T”. There has been a lot of speculation that this is an expansion of the now former “God Bless Deli”at 818 Manhattan Avenue. Makes sense— but as we all know that is not how Greenpoint rolls. I queried the fellows who operate the latter establishment (which is now the USA Deli). They assured me this was not their endeavor and they were none too happy about it. So now we have— or will soon have— a God Bless Deli 2 sans a #1. Oy.

New York Shitty Day Ender: Notes From The Falafel Front

gbdeliMy friend (and fellow Greenpointer) Neighborhood Threat writes (in an email entitled new in the Greenpoint falafel wars):

The God Bless Deli Grocery now has felafel and shwarma! I had the felafel Friday night. It was in a lafa and not a pita bread, but it was delicious. I would have had the schwarma today but they were down to almost nothing. They’ve got a menu now and are really picking up their game.

They’re good guys and they are open 24/7.

When I walked by today, sure enough, falafel was advertised on the God Bless Deli’s front door.

For the very affordable price of $3.49, no less.

And— not be outdone— Greenpoint’s newest sandwich shop, “SUBS UR WAY” (which is located just across the street), has also entered the falafel fray.

SUBSurWAY

As for which one offers better fare, that remains to be determined. I have heard mixed reviews about God Bless Deli. And as for SUBS UR WAY, well, I learned last weekend a simple (and pretty small) scoop of chocolate mint ice cream in a sugar cone will set you back $2.70. OUCH.

God Bless Deli

SUBS UR WAY
821 Manhattan Avenue
Brooklyn, New York 11222

For those of you who are keeping track, this brings the number of establishments in Greenpoint that now serve or in the near future will serve these bits of chickpea-filled goodness to— not three, not four, not five— BUT SIX.

Bon appetit!
