WILMINGTON, NC (STARNEWSONLINE.COM / PAUL STEPHEN) — Philly transplants should soon find respite in a sandwich shop planned for the recently vacated space at 204 Princess St. Port City Cheese Steak Company, a new restaurant from the same ownership team behind the New Orleans-themed Bourbon St. just around the corner at 35 N. Front St., is shooting for an early December opening, partner Kevin Corbett said.

Although he graduated from Laney High School, Corbett was born in New York, and has a strong affinity for that region’s cuisine. Expect sausage parmigiana heroes and other Italian staples from the Northeast to show up on the menu. But he said nailing the authentic details that make Philadelphia’s signature sandwich special is his foremost goal. “I’ll go to Philly before it opens. I’ll do my due diligence,” he said, outlining an enviable research mission he’s planning in coming weeks.
