Liberty Cheesesteak's "Love Park" in Spitalfield's Market is London's first full time real Philly Cheesesteak retail experience.
Our contention has always been that you can't separate the Philly Cheesesteak from the culture from which it emerged. We've argued that the real Philly Cheesesteak is not something you consume, so much as it is something you experience. With "Love Park" - we're endeavouring to transport Londoners to the streets of South Philly to provide a glimpse into the culture behind the food and why Philadelphians, the world over, are so passionate about it.
Why "Love Park"?
1. Philly is the City of Brotherly Love.
2. Philadelphians are an emotive bunch - just go to an Eagles game if you don't believe us.
3. "Love Park" is a famous plaza in Center City Philadelphia and home to one of the most well known installations of artist Robert Indiana's iconic LOVE sculpture.
