So the fact that Defonte's opened up a location on 21st and 3rd across the street from my parent's house means that I've been seeing my parents a lot more.  Every sandwich there is pretty much the gold standard, and the Shrimp Parm on a hero is no exception.  While $11.95 may seem steep for a sandwich, this is Manhattan where nothing is cheap, AND all of Defonte's sandwiches are really two sandwiches in one.  The shrimp are jumbo and not overly breaded with a dressing of marinara sauce and melted mozzarella cheese.  The hero works for the first half of the sandwich, but by the second half it's just too much bread and you'll wind up picking out the contents with a fork - not that there's anything wrong with that since the contents are so good.
