Karina’s, the quirky little BYO that is moving out of 1520 E. Passyunk Ave. to make way for Brigantessa from the Le Virtu crew, has called off its proposed move to the fountain.
Rumor has it that it is moving to a new location on Ritner Street, but we hear that site has not yet been finalized.
The restaurant closed at the end of East Passyunk restaurant week earlier this month. The intent was that it would resurface only a block away at 1535 S. 11th St. sometime late spring or early summer. This sign posted this weekend shows that’s not going to happen:
The Yelp page doesn’t have an updated address yet, but it does show that they were quite optimistic about being open at the fountain quickly, according to this post by Elise. L on Feb. 8:
We will be out of commission for less than a month pushing for a Grand opening April 1st!
We left a message to find out what happened and will update when we hear back.
