By its own description, per a press release, Crown Heights’ newly opened Summerhill “boozy sandwich shop” is “an oasis” so Instagrammable it’s, “easy to forget you’re sitting across the street from a Key Food and not the Rockaway break.” Their sandwiches, including the Keep Austin Weird, Chicken Fried and a BLT with garlic aioli and beefsteak are “refreshingly unpretentious” and their cocktails include the $12 #Vanlife.If you’re not feeling $12 cocktails, you can also opt for a 40oz of rosé.

Located in a former bodega at 637 Nostrand Ave., the restaurant is the passion product of reformed corporate tax attorney and Toronto transplant Becca Brennan. Inside, the bathrooms are “cheekily wallpapered,” the vibe is “surf club-style” and there’s an original “bullet-hole ridden wall.” (“Yes, we’re keeping it.”)

In its bodega days, the space allegedly had a “rumored backroom illegal gun shop,” at least according to one comment Brennan read in on the local website Brooklynian, Gothamist reported. She did not research the fact further.

“I don’t have any backup to that,” she told Gothamist of the gun shop rumor, “but when you think about it as a joke like, yep, that’s a bullet hole.”
