It seems to have been quite a while since Defonte's was mentioned here, so I figured it was due. Although many sandwiches of note may be had at Defonte's (379 Columbia St; near the Red Hook side of the tunnel entrance), you will encounter Perfection in their hot roast beef sandwich. Thinly sliced rare roast beef on fresh sesame seeded Italian bread soaked in gravy. Simple and sublime. My kids demand one every Saturday without fail (my daughter also demanded I post this).
