Every week, I document another dish that impressed and satiated me during my food adventures around New York City

COURT STREET GROCERS HERO SHOP, 116 Sullivan Street (between Van Brunt Street and Conover Street), Red Hook, Brooklyn

The guys at Cout Street Grocers have a way with turkey. The usually bland and dry meat is always treated with respect at the three locations.

Their most out-of-the-way outpost is near the dock in the semi-secluded neighborhood of Red Hook not far from their original Carroll Gardens location. Here, they focus on heroes offered to the neighborhood at affordable prices and with chef-driven ingredients and preparations.

The Ollie at COURT STREET GROCERS HERO SHOP

Normally I’d shy away from ordering a turkey sandwich, but since they proved that fowl can have depth and flavor with their original turkey club, I was more than confident ordering the Ollie.

Using diverse ingredients, it touches on most of the desired flavor profiles. The turkey itself is moist and salty and blanketed with a layer of provolone. Then some crisp bitter broccoli rabe brings a bite to the party and finally it’s livened up by a sweet and spicy sriracha honey. Not to mention the cushion of a seeded bun (from nearby Caputo’s Bakery) soaks up every last ounce of flavor.

I’ll never be hesitant to order turkey sandwiches again, at least not at any of the Court Street Grocers locations.
