Side Dishes: Burlington's global deli gets a makeover

If you’ve recently stopped by Four Corners of the Earth on Pine Street and found construction instead of lunch, never fear. The under-the-radar eatery, which serves creative sandwiches inspired by global cuisines, has reopened with a new look.

“It has a different feel to it,” says owner Ladislav Pancisin. “It’s kind of like being on a fancy boat.”

Slightly higher prices — necessitated by rising food costs — come with the upgrade, but so do a few new sandwiches, including the Sicilian Eggplant and a Reuben with pesto. Espresso will follow in a week or so, and homemade desserts, such as pie, torte and ice cream, are in the works. “People who don’t want to go downtown for dinner can come in for coffee and dessert,” Pancisin suggests.

Although he already does dinners for four to 10 people by reservation, Pancisin is flirting with the idea of a nightly routine: “On Friday, maybe it will be roasted potatoes and fish. On Saturday, it could be Wiener schnitzel,” he says.
