City Sub: Closed For Renovation Or Moving?


City Sub closed
Oh City Sub, how you’re playing with our hearts (and stomachs). The sandwich shop located at 450 Bergen Street, which has never had long enough hours in our hero-loving opinion, is now apparently temporarily closed up — but what’s coming up next for them is a bit of a mystery.

Last week a sign popped up in the window announcing they’d be moving to a new location on the same block. But by yesterday afternoon, the windows had all been papered over, and a new sign was up:

City Sub closed sign
According to this one, they’re closed because of “demolition and pending renovation of the building,” though there don’t appear to be any permits for work through the Department of Buildings yet.

We’ve tried to reach out for more info, but no one’s been answering their phone number for the past few days. Here’s hoping they’re back up and running soon — and that they can stand a little competition from another hero spot, Parm, which will be opening just around the corner this fall.

  1. Here is the scoop. The location of the old Melt restaurant is being occupied and renovated. The rumor is that Melt will open again, possibly under a different name because of it awful past reputation ( poor service and expensive bad food ).
    Question of the day. What are the chances that its going to be different this time???

  2. The saying from an old wise Jewish rabbi ” we predict the future outcomes from our learned experiences “. You can take this to the bank.

  3. The answer your million dollar question. You mask the foul smell with a fragrant
    spray, but deep down the offensive stink is still there.

  4. You are totally correct on this. A Zebra can not ever change its stripes,
    unless its dead and buried.

  5. Here’s a idea for you to think about. Why don’t CITY SUB move closer to 5th avenue? They can take over the old Melt that was shut down by health dept. in November 2013. The location is bigger and it vacant. They will be more visible to the foot traffic on 5th avenue. Something to think about.
