About Us

Heroic Deli is dedicated to re-inventing the Italian - American sandwich. The first Hero was attributed in 1899 to an Italian baker named Giovanni Amato in Portland Maine. He created the sandwich as a portable lunch for construction workers. Since then the formula has not changed much from a foot long loaf of bread stuffed with domestic cold cuts and cheese with relish, oil and vinegar.

Heroic is out to re-invent the Hero with all cold cuts and cheeses imported from Italy, house made sauces and relishes and freshly baked bread toasted at the moment of ordering. In addition, Heroic features an exciting menu of innovative, Italian salads made with all organic greens.

Heroic is brought to you by XtremeFoodie Jeffrey Merrihue and Executive Chef Barbara Pollastrini.
