Joe Cicala, chef at Le Virtu, is planning an enoteca concept focusing on southern Italian wines by the glass and local craft beers, Foobooz reports. It’s still early, and owners Francis Cratil Cretarola and Catherine Lee haven’t selected a location, but the website did provide a tantalizing tidbit.
At least a couple of South Philadelphia locations have been eliminated as the search continues.
Unlike Le Virtu, which took a year to get open, the team is looking for a more finished space that have plenty of foot traffic and neighborhood backing. Which seems like a slam dunk to us, but we’re not NIMBYs.
We’ll keep you posted.
