Just what you want: tapas sandwiches!

Reis Goldberg, owner of the nine-year-old Bar Reis on Fifth Avenue in Park Slope, has turned the storefront next door into Reis 100, a self-proclaimed “sandwich factory” that offers 100 varieties of toasted mini-meals — 69 of which cost $3.50.

You can’t help but find a combination to adore: under “Grilled Cheese,” there is a gruyere, bacon and caramelized onion version. Under “Meat,” there’s a shrunken sub of chorizo, manchego and roasted red pepper? And vegetarians can have a kimchee and pickled oyster mushroom sandwich.

It’s a concept so revolutionary — or perhaps evolutionary — that Goldberg (pictured) called in Caputo Bakery in Carroll Gardens to craft custom-made four-and-a-half-inch mini-baguettes.

“The idea is tapas you can hold,” he said.

GO Brooklyn got an advance tasting of a BLT with caramelized onions and a pastrami with a whole grain Dijon mustard. Taken separately, each was a great snack. Together, they were an argument for settling down with a few more and making a night of it.

Reis 100 [375 Fifth Ave., between Sixth and Seventh streets in Park Slope, (718) 207-7874]. Open 7 pm–2 am. Sandwiches, $3.50–$5.

Reader Feedback

Linda Scher from Clinton Hill says:
The Society for Clinton Hill and the Ft. Greene Conservancy co-sponsored a successful theatrical reading this past Sunday, August 16th, 2009. The Classical Theatre of Harlem and the Frederick Douglas Creative Arts Center provided the play adaptation, actors and direction. Raymond Gaspard the renowned director of these prestigious organizations partnered with our two community non-profits to bring live theatre for FREE to the local residents.
This was our first proformance, and from the reaction of the audience of approximately 100 viewers, it will possibly be repeated again next season.
We have scheduled a second reading for 3 P.M. on Sunday September 13th, 2009 at the knoll of trees left of Martyrs Monument in Ft. Greene Park. It’s an adaptation of a medieval play PIRATE BESS, a swashbuckling romantic adventure comedy.
Please join us to enjoy LIVE THEATRE.
Our attempt to bring culture to our local community is reliant on the community’s demands.
