What's Happening in:  East Passyunk Crossing 

Cantina’s patio – a little less eastern bloc

The Cantina’s looking good after some updates to the outside patio. Wooden planters stained almost the same color as the orange facade of the restaurant surround the gravel patio, creating a little oasis at EPA and Morris. Apparently, there are plans for a green wall, too.

The latest patio development, apparently not the last
But are there any plans for a real deck? That gravel is kind of brutal. At Philly Speaks, poster tsarstruck says — in the 1000th post on the New places on Passyunk thread — that they’ve agreed to do some porous paving. Sounds good, but we still think a deck would be better.

Will BYOB’s coming along


Meal Ticket checked in with Christopher Kearse, the chef/owner opening Will BYOB at 1911 E.P.A. near the end of August. 

MT says he’s in the process of hiring his staff, plucking from his former employers Pumpkin and Lacroix (Kearse has a mile-long resume of short stints at stellar restaurants, including Napa’s French Laundry and at Charlie Trotter’s and Alinea in Chicago).

From the outside renovations appear to be progressing smoothly. New, black fling-out windows are installed and lighting and the paint job look complete. A quick peek inside showed plenty of work to be done though, so hopefully late August isn’t too optimistic.

Kearse seems to think not, though. His Open Table site is up, which is a good sign even if their map is wrong.

Oops, that’s West Passyunk

Check out this incredible story about Kearse from May in City Paper.
