Restaurant Concept: Straight outta Brooklyn! From the people who brought Pomodoro’s Cucina Italiana to League City, comes this New York-Style Deli. Owner Louis Floridia grew up in Brooklyn and his fondest memories were meeting his dad for lunch when he was working at the Brooklyn Waterfront. There were a lot of delis to choose from in the area, but Louis’ favorite was the one that served the sloppiest sandwiches. It has always stood out in his mind because their sandwiches were the best he’s ever had. Wanting to recreate the deli he remembered from his childhood, Louis and his wife Jo opened Sloppy Nick’s Brooklyn Deli and decorated it with memorabilia from the city they both grew up in. Louis’s sister, Angelina Tropea, has been brought on board to run this family-owned and operated business and makes the homemade classic Italian cookies from scratch, using their grandmother’s recipes.
