There’s a welcome new addition to the Belltown sandwich scene; Calozzi’s Cheesesteaks had a quiet opening on Blanchard just west of 1st (by Belltown Billiards.) You’ll have to look hard, because the place is really easy to miss and I’m pretty sure I walked right by it twice without noticing.
The cheesesteaks are amazing. I swung by on Friday night while walking home from work. They’re $8 and worth every penny. Sure, it seems like you’re getting a sandwich through a prison door, but dont let that stop you. The cook’s name is Al. He said to be sure and mention that if looks like no one is around, yell “Al!!!!” at the top of your lungs. Charming.
Al moved to Seattle two years ago from Jersey and grew up in his family’s restaurant cooking….The guy knows what’s he’s doing. Welcome to the neighborhood Al!
