Steaks, shakes, brews, and more will be brought to Center City this month with the arrival of Cleavers, a cheesesteak shop opening its doors on 108 S 18th Street in the Rittenhouse Square area; in the former Good Stuff Eatery space.
The fast casual restaurant is the latest venture from Dimitri and Electra Poulimenos (siblings from a predominant cheesesteak manufacturing company) and Ted and Sav Bouikidis (the Bouikidis brothers being the team behind the award-winning local chain Zesto Pizza).
Cleavers, which will offer cheesesteaks, fries, and boozy shakes, is bringing a classic South Philadelphia staple a little more central. The restaurant’s owners, first generation Greek friends and relatives all grew up in the food industry from a young age, and learned that “great service, quality food and passion for the industry” are the keys to success.
Their version of the perfect cheesesteak is 100% USDA domestic rib eye, handrolled bread, and artisanal cheeses.
Experimenting with unique flavor combinations resulted in equally impressive veggie sandwich and salad selections. The portobello mushroom is taking the industry by storm, so the crew at Cleavers will be introducing a portobello cheesesteak sandwich.
Knowing that a good sandwich should be complemented by equally good fries and sides, customers can choose from fried pickles, zucchini sticks, fried spicy green beans, and either garlic parmesan or steak topped fries, to name a few.
Cleavers will be able to seat 45 people, with an expansive main dining room and options to pickup and takeout.
Restaurant Hours are:
- Sunday – Thursday 11 a.m. – 10 p.m
- Friday – Saturday 11 a.m. – 11 p.m.
