There’s a new restaurant in Eliot! The owners are John-Fletcher “Fletch” Halyburton, a former operations director in the Toro Bravo restaurant group, and his sister, Emily Peterson, a North Carolina-based wine industry veteran and the name is an homage to John’s aunts.  Lottie and Zula’s is serving up amazing breakfast sandwiches, tantalizing lunch options, and now Sunday dinners.

As their website states, “Lottie & Zula’s offers Southern New England style grinders, subs, sliced bread sandwiches, soup, salads and tasty beverages to NE Portland’s Eliot neighborhood and greater Portland proper. Notta lotta fuss, just a wicked good sandwich.” 

They are open Tuesday through Saturday from 8 am to 4 pm and you can order in person at their contactless kiosk, by phone, or via their website for pickup or delivery (by hey CCC PDX!). They have just started a preorder Sunday dinner option which looks amazing and includes a huge amount of food.

Check out their website for interesting stories of how their restaurant and sandwiches got their name and so much more information.
