Come And Get It (Closing Mid-Oct 2013)

jlunar Jul 24, 2013 07:57 AM

You got 2-3 months left to eat here before this "temporary" (it's been there 1.5 yrs) restaurant finally closes. Good stuff. Worth checking out. New digs unknown.

    Their jerk chicken poutine is a thing of beauty, gotta have that one more time.

      The Hawaiian pork belly sandwich is phenomenal! Especially with the crispy skin (added hit sauce).

      I find it superior to the B Boy's pork belly down the street.

        Are they gonna move or just close up shop??

            They're looking for a new spot, but nothing is certain at the moment.

              Any update as to when the actual closing date will be? We'll be visiting from NYC October 10th through the 14th and this place was mentioned in another thread. Sounds like it would have been delish. Fingers crossed it is still around. And toes. ;)

                  They just tweeted about the same closing date on twitter too:

                  "Our last day at our current location will be October 25 but stay tuned because we want to find a new home!!"

                      Off topic, but it's funny..... you and I are trading places. I'm visiting NYC Oct 9 thru 14th.

                      Toronto has excellent food, you're going to have a great time. My suggestions. Look into Hey Meatball, Banh Mi Boys, The Burger's Priest, Ravi Soups, and Carib Fusion street cart for delicious jerk chicken roti at King & Bay streets downtown (good weather only!).

                        me too.. i am going to be in NYC next weekend from sat through tue and i loved zenfoodist's post here: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/917880 because that is exactly how i want to be eating my way through NYC. :) if you have any suggestions, let me know..

                        we will be one meat eater and one vegetarian, so places good for both would be amazing.. or any good veg places in general too.

                          My top eats last in NYC last month were:

                          Momofuku Ssam Bar
                          Barney Greengrass
                          Mighty Balls (a meatball stand at an installation of stands called Madison Square Eats, which I believe is closed now for the season).

                          Barney Greengrass has plenty of non-meat options I'm sure. And despite David Chang's anti-veggie statements I'm pretty sure there's some veggie-friendly items at Ssam Bar.

                          Eataly, Shake Shack and Doughnut Plant (go to LES location) are NYC institutions that might be good for carnivores and veggies alike. All were great!

                          Have fun in NYC!!!

                          p.s. research Shopsins as well. For sure lots of choice there.

                    According to their twitter feed, they made too much duck confit so it's on special today. Not that it helps you, but if anyone wants duck confit and is local, this could be useful.

                      I ended up being in the area tonight so decided to get at least one more trip into Come and Get It before it closed down. I wasn't a huge fan of the Duck Confit sandwich, it seemed dried out considering it was duck confit. I was still hungry after so I grabbed a fried chicken bao from Banh Mi Boys after :)

                        I am honestly SO excited about BMB. I love me a good banh mi. Here in NYC, the best ones are at Saigon Banh Mi in the back of a jewelery store in Little Italy. Oh My.

                          You are aware that these aren't exactly traditional Banh Mi. They're higher end and you pay for that. In most places, you can get a BM for under $2. At BMB you're over $5.
                          Worth it IMHO.

                          Make sure you get the Kimchi Fries.

                            Thanks for the video link. I'd seeen the menu when it was first recommended to me and I was so excited then. My type of place. Avant garde Banh mi! ;)

                          You should end up in that area more often. I should end up in that area more often. Next time I end up in that area, I'm gonna get a sandwich from one place and loaded fries (kimchi or poutine) from the other. I wonder if the bar across the street will let me bring food in so I can wash it down w/ a beer.

                  Looks like they found a spot on Queen near Euclid. "If all goes well, the new Come and Get It will be open near the end of November after a slight reno."
