By Degrees Cafe is celebrating its first day with a special deal. When it opens for lunch at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, it's offering the first 20 customers 15 percent off, according to its Facebook page.

The sleek-looking restaurant is housed in the refurbished Fallsway Spring building at 415 S. Central Ave., just north of Eastern Avenue. Omar Semidey, a former chef at Fleet Street Kitchen and Wine Market Bistro, has devised a New American menu for lunch and dinner.

Some of the items on their online menu include sandwiches like roasted turkey, $9.75; crispy fish, $10; and grilled cheese with dried apricots, $6.50; and "plates" like Cuban-style roasted pork, $17; pasta Bolognese, $13.50; and eggplant and tofu, $14.50.

Located near posh Harbor East, the restaurant is "shifting the culinary landscape by a few degrees to focus on what's important: well-prepared and honest food, great service, and reasonable prices," says its website.

By Degrees Cafe will be open Monday-Saturday for lunch and dinner. The phone number is 410-522-0478.
