Dewey Dufresne’s BYGGYZ Opens Today at Noon on Clinton Street

Must Read


We have been waiting for a very long time for this one. At noon today, Dewey Dufresne will finally swing open the doors of his new sandwich shop. It’s called BYGGYZ and is located at 37-39 Clinton St., just a couple of doors from Donnybrook.

News of the restaurant began circulating in the spring of 2015. There have been all sorts of construction-related delays (let’s not go into the sordid details).

Dewey and several partners opened 71 Clinton Fresh Food in 1999, the restaurant that made his son, Wylie Dufresne, a world famous chef.

As Grub Street put it, “Call in sick. Take a personal day. Tell the boss you have a family emergency. The Great Sandwich Wait is finally over on Clinton Street.” More from New York Magazine about the opening menu:

…the BYGGYBEEF sandwich Dufresne debuted (six years ago at San Gennaro) — a pomegranate-braised flavor bomb with pickled vegetables, melted American cheese, and “Xxollent sauce” (mayo, mustard, and sweet peppers) — is still the main attraction… The streamlined opening menu offers three more options: a triple-pork BYGGYPYGGY with cheddar, pickles, and peppers; the BYGGYBYRD (like a turducken in sandwich form), which combines chicken-liver pâté, smoked duck, and hot turkey breast; and the Tuna SOF, for south of France — like a pan bagnat, except the “bathed bread” in this case isn’t rustic and French, but marble rye from a bakery in the Bronx.


Which is now today, Wednesday.
