Just yesterday, we reported on a new sandwich shop to open in early 2011 on Baltic and Henry Streets. Then today, I walked by the shuttered Cafe Ribant (formerly Cafe Mei Mei at 231 Court St.), to find a sign on the storefront window announcing the Van Horn Sandwich Shop. The gentleman outside told me the owners hail from North Carolina and hope to open early next month. And though there will certainly be sandwiches, it will be more of a cafe with BBQ, fried chicken and other specialties from the South. The plan is to open for lunch and dinner, pouring beer and wine, then graduating to cocktails in a few months. More to come when we get it.
