A Look Around Shut Up & Eat, Now (Softly) Open

New, 1 comment

[Avila, 8/20/12]

Italian sandwich cart Shut Up & Eat is ready to debut its brick-and-mortar restaurant, which begins its soft-opening hours this week. Earlier this summer, co-owner/chef John Fimmano told Eater that the 30-seat SE Gladstone restaurant aimed for a casual "juke joint, diner atmosphere," and the completed space mimics the diner aesthetic with a 12-seat main counter and drop-down lighting. As promised, the full-scale restaurant sees a major menu upgrade, with the addition of breakfast sandwiches (like a butternut squash with egg and sausage on a biscuit), side dishes (brussels sprout and sweet potato hash; roasted pepper and bread salad); and panzerotti (aka deep-fried dough pockets filled with mozzarella, tomato, and choice of meat). As with the cart, all bread is baked in-house Bread is provided by Pearl Bakery and featured on sandwiches like a rapini with roasted peppers; pan-fried chicken Parm; and a classic Italian hoagie.

During its soft opening, SU&E will be open Tuesday through Thursday, 9a.m. to 7p.m. Regular hours — from 9a.m. to 9p.m., Tuesday through Sunday — begin September 4.
