Harvey's Hot Sandwiches
Parramatta's retro diner has saucy subs and a Nutella fountain.
Parramatta's Town Square has recently been given a $3.2 billion makeover. Over the last three years, it has been transformed into a dining precinct home to restaurants such as Ciccia Bella and Lilymu, which have opened alongside chains Betty's Burgers and Fishbowl. Now, a new hot sandwich diner is set to join the party.
Harvey's Hot Sandwiches takes its cues from a traditional American diner, but with a fresh take on the hot sandwich. The interior of Harvey's will transport you back in time with nostalgic neon signs, black and white photos and retro diner seating.
To eat, it's offering up saucy subs jam-packed with your choice of meats and fillings. To start, you choose your bread: white, wholemeal or GF. Then you choose your fillings: brisket ($15) or pastrami ($15), which come simple (mustard and cheese) or sloppy (russian dressing, coleslaw and cheese).
Neither of those tickle your fancy? Pick from the lineup of 11 signature and classic subs. There's a philly cheesesteak, a muffuletta, a beef dip and a Nashville-style hot chicken number (all $16). Oh, and a meatball number ($14) with port and veal meatballs, garlic butter, marinara sauce and mozzarella.
If you have a sweet-tooth, or you're still peckish after your sandwich, the diner will also feature an Nutella fountain designed to drown cookies and cookie sandwiches in choc-hazelnut goodness. To drink, it's serving up house-made lemonades and old-fashioned floats, made with the likes of raspberry lemonade and creaming soda.
Harvey's Hot Sandwiches will open on Wednesday, November 4.
