The former Liberty Cheesesteak Company food van in Old Spitalfield’s Markets has just opened as a bricks and mortar sandwich restaurant and bar in Fitzrovia, named Passyunk Avenue.
The Philadelphia-themed site serves up the infamous cheesesteak sandwiches, as well as pretzels, meatball subs, and chicken parmigiana.
The cheesesteaks (pictured) take pride of place on the menu and are made with sliced ribeye beef in a soft Italian roll and topped with homemade cheese sauce. It also serves up roast pork and meatball sandwiches, soft pretzels and 'scrapple' - a pork meatloaf.
The outlet is split into an upstairs 100-cover restaurant with a bar, and a dive bar downstairs, with big screens throughout showing Philadelphia-orientated sports from football to baseball.
The bar delivers traditional American brews, and Passyunk Avenue has also teamed up with London-based Sambrooks Brewery to supply beer.
The site is open 7 days a week with a late license till 12pm at weekends. Some form of delivery or take out will be offered too.
