Italian-inspired sandwich cart Shut Up and Eat, which calls SE Division's A La Carts pod home, announced last week that it would temporarily shutter, as owners John Fimmano and Glenn Hollenbeck were "in the works of expanding into a brick & mortar space."
And now, the magical world of OLCC applications reveals that SU&E is eyeing a brick-and-mortar location on SE Gladstone, a stone's throw from Gladstone Street Pizza. Per the applications, the space would serve as a counter-service-only sandwich shop with 20 seats (presumably highlighting popular items on the current menu likemeatball subs, cheesesteaks, and Italian grinder hoagies). Shut Up and Eat debuted in the A La Carts pod in fall 2010, and its expansion into all-weather digs marks the second major sandwich cart movin' on up: Lardo announced earlier this spring that it would move into the former Johnny B's space on SE Hawthorne.
More information about the Shut Up and Eat spot as it becomes available.
