Oh, the horror! Nick Solares of A Hamburger Today went to the new midtown location of Defonte’s around 7:30 p.m. and then to Baoguette only to find them both out of sammies. We feel for you, guy — more than once, we’ve hit up Porchetta only to find a sign on the door that says something like “ out of pig — sucks to be you.” Because we don’t want this happening to you: Porchetta closes at 11 p.m., but they suggest you get there before 9:30 p.m. to be safe. And they sometimes run out of meat during the day, but rest assured they’ll have more an hour or so later. No matter how frustrated you are, do not resort to Subway.
