The space, which we first told you about in mid-March, offers yoga and fitness classes and services like massage, reiki and acupuncture, in addition to being a boutique selling jewelry, incense and more.
By now, we all know just how great our restaurant scene is on East Passyunk Avenue. This new guide from The Inquirer highlights food critic Craig LaBan’s favorite spot on the avenue.
The list of 25 restaurants, bars and even a grocer (Green Aisle, of course) includes some of LaBan’s three bell rated restaurants like Palladino’s, Laurel and Noord, some two bell restaurants like Paradiso, and also some yet-to-be-rated establishments like Bing Bing Dim Sum and Ramayana.
The new store, called Boutique W, opened last week in the location.

Plans have not been set in stone, but they include adding a traffic island in the middle of the intersection, expanding the curb at most street corners to shrink the distance pedestrians have to cross, extending the peninsula in front of A Man’s Image, adding pedestrian timing lights and of course, adding greenery and improving lighting.
