Hunter Pond, 25, grew up in Dallas a little sandwich-obsessed, but never found a place that served fine sandwiches just the way he liked it, so after a bit of time, he decided to open a shop of his own for handcrafted gourmet sandwiches. East Hampton Sandwich Co., named after the town in New York that Pond used to vacation when he was little, is opening up in Snider Plaza on Wednesday, September 12. Alex Urrunaga of Plan B Group designed the stylish, fast-casual restaurant to look like the inside of a beautiful summer home. Pond says of his sandwich shop, “It has a really artisan feel to it. We make all our from sauces from scratch and we cook all of our meats in-house.”
It’s hard for the law school grad-turned-sandwich shop owner to choose his favorite sandwich on the menu, but when he does, it’s either the fried chicken and jack (with Southern fried chicken, pepper jack, arugula, cured bacon, avocado mash, jalapeno cream sauce) or the turkey-bacon-avocado sandwich. Pair your sandwich with beer or wine from the menu, and Pond and Co. believe you’ll have yourself a mighty fine lunch or dinner at East Hampton Sandwich Co.
