Crafty Sandwich

East Hampton Sandwich Co.’s menu alone makes it the kind of place you hop in your car and drive two hours to visit because you just have to try the Asparagus & Gruyère. Or maybe it’s the Hot Cheese & Short Rib or authentic Lobster Roll that brings you to its tables.

Regardless, the unique eats served at East Hampton Sandwich Co. will soon be readily available—without the drive. Opening its third location since it was founded in 2012, East Hampton last month took over the space once occupied by Smashburger.
At 1605 S. University, the shop is close to TCU, Colonial and downtown Fort Worth, a prime location that attracted the owners. With patio drinks, handcrafted sandwiches and quick, upscale service, the restaurant hopes to become a neighborhood hotspot.
Though in business for just two years, the sandwich shop has racked up an impressive set of accolades, including a spot on a recent “Top 21 Sandwich Shops” in America ranking. —Allana Wooley
