Cleavers Is Now Open

New cheesesteak spot for Rittenhouse.

Spike Mendelsohn’s hamburger joint, Good Stuff Eatery has made way for Cleavers, an ambitious cheesesteak spot that hopes to make a go of it at 108 South 18th Street. The steak shop opened last night and features a “How Do You Want It?” menu of steaks, chicken sandwiches, salads and perhaps reluctantly veggie sandwich options. There are also a selection of fries, sides, beer and boozy shakes.

The steaks are made with chopped ribeye, the chicken sandwiches are made with grilled chicken or a breaded cutlet. Steak sandwiches start at $8.75 and max out at $16.50 for the Cleaver, a one pound steak served with both American cheese and Cheese Whiz.

If none of the 22 steak or chicken sandwiches float your boat, there is also the option to create your own.

Cleavers is the collaborative project of Ted and Sav Bouikidis who own Zesto Pizza & Grill, a small chain with four locations, and their partners Dimitri and Electra Poulimenos.

Cleavers isn’t online yet. Hours are Sunday through Thursday: 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.; and Friday and Saturday: 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
