Celebrated restaurateur Memphis Garrett and Chef Jeremy Powell, the team behind Fort Lauderdale’s wildly-successful eatery The Poke House, have partnered with award-winning real estate maven Samantha “Sam” DeBianchi to open Subs and Suds in the city’s up-and-coming Riverside Park/Sailboat Bend neighborhood. Slated to open early 2018, Subs and Suds will feature creative riffs on some of the country’s most quintessential sandwiches, along with specialty craft brews and sinfully delicious ice cream concoctions.

Both Garrett, founder/owner of The Poke House and former Director of Operations of SBE Hospitality (SLS Hotels, Katsuya, Hyde), and DeBianchi—owner of DeBianchi Real Estate who has been featured on FOX News, FOX Business, CNBC, Bloomberg and BRAVO’s “Million Dollar Listing Miami”—see Subs and Suds as a promising addition to the burgeoning community they call home. “I think Sailboat/Riverside is a hidden gem that people have been overlooking for years. We’ve got parks, restaurants, entertainment, walkability and close proximity to everything. Subs and Suds will be another great spot in the neighborhood,” says DeBianchi.

For Subs and Suds, Chef Powell will create a fun and approachable menu (still in development). Formerly of Hyde Beach Kitchen & Cocktails and Katsuya South Beach, and most recently Dune Deck Beach Club which opened in July 2017 in Westhampton, New York, Powell will serve up elevated twists on signature sandwiches from U.S. cities along with a selection of classics. Each sandwich will be expertly paired with one of 20 craft beers or diners can choose their own accompanying brew. Creative sandwiches will include the Honolulu Pork Sandwich with six-hour braised pulled pork, Japanese BBQ sauce, spicy pineapple pico, and fennel cabbage slaw on a sweet bread hoagie roll, paired with Maui Brewing Company’s Big Swell IPA. Classics will include the Miami Cuban featuring slow-roasted pork, sweet ham, Swiss cheese, pickles, Dijon mustard and potato sticks served atop a Cuban roll, paired with Hatuey Cerveza. Desserts will be equally enticing and will include sinful sweets such as creative blizzards, soft-serve, dipped cones and more.

Subs and Suds is slated to open in early 2018 at 601 Southwest 12th Avenue in Fort Lauderdale.
