Current Status: Many places switched to simpler food to get through the crisis. Coconut Club was one of those places when it opened a ghost kitchen selling sandwiches called Crush Subbies. Coconut Club closed up shop though, and the guy behind the subs, Pete Sitcov, looked to open his own spot. He and Coconut Club co-owner Emily Cipes opened this storefront shop wedged between the gym and Miss Pixie’s. The subs are mostly rooted is classics and tradition, with occasional playfulness (one sub is called Marisa Tomei Eats Free) and childhood nostalgia (potato chips sprinkled inside the turkey sub) thrown in. There is no seating currently, just a counter to pick up orders. They do take-out and delivery. Hours are limited from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm. Closed Tuesdays.
