The new Harbor East sandwich/pizza shop looks more spacious than its former Elevation Burger rendition. It’s because the kitchen was moved to the back of the room, said owner Alex Smith, who was overseeing opening-day operations today.
The menu looks interesting, featuring signature sandwiches like the Harbor Beast (roast beef, horseradish mayo, and Swiss, lightly heated, on a sub roll, $7.99) and The Godfather (a crab cake with lettuce and tomato, $12.99, named after baking magnate John Paterakis Sr., Alex’s grandfather, he said).
Pizzas are available by the slice or whole (18 inches), either plain cheese or in combos like BBQ chicken or the Heart Attack (ham, bacon, sausage, and pepperoni). There’s also beer on tap, including Clipper City, Stella, and Blue Moon).
Even at 3 this afternoon, there were several diners in the restaurant at 655 Aliceanna St. "We’ve been really busy," Alex said.
A website is in the works. Hours are still being determined. For now, the deli opens at 10 a.m. and closes at 11 p.m. on weekdays. For late-night chowhounds, it serves food till 3 a.m. on Friday and Saturday. It's open daily.
