After making Crown Heights a destination for gonzo pizza with his eponymous PeteZaaz pie parlor (which will soon return from the dead following Entner's recent buyout of his former partners), Pete Entner set his sights on applying a similar framework to sandwiches. The erstwhile No. 7 sous chef and pizzaiolo has taken his adventurous flavor combinations and transported them to a modern Boerum Hill sub shop called Boomwich (311 Atlantic Avenue, 718-643-9229). And while the concept undoubtedly hangs around in the same bread/filling Venn diagram circles as No. 7 Sub Shop, if you're looking for a circa-2009 Bobby Flay-less food world throwdown, keep moving. A month into Boomwich's existence, the world of bread-hugged meats and vegetables has proven it can support multiple creative sandwich operations.
