What: East Hampton Sandwich Company pop-up
Where: Kirby Ice House
PC Moment: Probably the biggest surprise of the sandwich-infused fête was the discovery that despite its East Coast name, East Hampton Sandwich Company is as Texan as tumbleweed. Expected to open in River Oaks District in late April (as PaperCity reported February 2nd), the shop is the brainchild of Dallas native Hunter Pond.
The wunderkind, who gave up law school to open his first up-scale sandwich shop six years ago in Dallas, was on hand to talk fresh bread, special sauces, house-cured meats, and, of course, lobster rolls.
Tempting the 150 young professionals, who turned out not only to sample the eats but also to support Houston Children’s Charity, were the signature handcrafted sandwiches including mini lobster rolls and fried chicken sandwiches and whoopie pies for dessert. Last year, the good eats earned East Hampton Thrillist.com’s ranking as top sandwich shop in America.
Pond has plans to open a second East Hampton location in Houston in May. Look for the sign at 907 Westheimer in Montrose.
