Bill Leavy and Karl Deuben started cooking together in 2004. Their shared love for food led them to open one of Portland, Maine’s first food trucks, SmallAxe in 2012. At SmallAxe, they converted their appreciation for local ingredients into delicious, hand-made, casual food. Their success led to the opening of East Ender in 2015. Here they continue their unique vision for casual dining with seasonal cuisine and a charming atmosphere, perfect for any occasion. Embodying an American pub culture, which holds in high regard not only food and drink but also a joyous and relaxing atmosphere, East Ender can be your special occasion, we can be your regular.
