There's a saliva-inducing reason to say hello at Bushwick's Hi Hello right off the Jefferson L: the sandwiches. With a menu imagined by co-owner and chef Phillip Gilmour, who you may see in the 'hood hopping between this spot and his popular Momo Sushi Shack, Hi Hello jazzes up classics with creative spins: a take on a cheesesteak features roasted top round beef, truffled cheese wiz, and grilled onion on ciabatta; a vegetarian sloppy joe is made with lentils, red rice, corn and edamame; and an "Icelandic" hot dog is a lamb sausage topped with caper remoulade, fried shallots and gherkin pickles. The food goes beyond the between-bread, too, with dinnertime mains like blue cheese pork chops and brunch-time jerk-chicken waffles.
