The long-awaited Red Hook outpost of Court Street Grocers is now open in Red Hook at 116 Sullivan Street. Owners Eric Finkelstein and Matt Ross had just started planning the annex last fall when Hurricane Sandy came along and messed up all their sandwich-world-domination plans. One peppy crowd-funding campaign and a few thousand white subway tiles later, however, and the turkey breast has been roasted, the coffee has been iced, and the pork pulled: Hero Shop is open Wednesdays through Sundays from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. The menu includes a roasted fennel and eggplant sandwich called the Uncle Chucky and a roast beef number called Mr. Cays, served with arugula, Worcestershire vinaigrette, and French onion dip on a seeded roll from Caputo’s.
