Bar Matchless, a Greenpoint hangout that occupies a former auto shop, has swerved unexpectedly toward Sicily. A recent addition to the short menu of burgers and sandwiches is panelle, the Palermo-style chickpea fritters, tucked into bread. “I’m certain that this is the first time the panelle sandwich has ever been served in this kind of environment,” surmises FatRobbie. “Truly old Brooklyn meets new Brooklyn.”
