Foodie Friday: Tasty bits to digest

There’s been a smorgasbord of South Philly restaurant news in the blog-o-sphere. Here are some links to whet your appetite, so to speak…


Northwest corner of 12th & Morris gets a tenant!

The Philadelphia Inquirer’s Michael Kline broke the news yesterday that something’s (finally!) coming to the retail space at the northwest corner of 12th & Morris streets (1646 S. 12th St.):

Separatist Beer Project, the onetime gypsy brewer from Easton known until recently as Sole Artisan Ales, says it has signed a lease for what it calls “a concept bar and beer experience”

Kline spoke with the owner Joe Fay who said the new bar would serve its beer plus wines and coffee. According to Kline:

He described the look as “modern Scandinavian.” The basement, with 10-foot ceilings, will be a kind of rathskeller, with barrel- and bottle-aging and a large table to be used for special events.

The bar could open “as soon as August.”

The space was originally slated for a restaurant by Chris Scarduzio. He bowed out before the building broke ground.  The retail space has sat empty since the building was completed about two years ago. See our previous coverage about the site here and here, and here.

  • Cafe Ynez near 22nd and Washington has become a worthy go-t0 Mexican spot for Point Breeze and Graduate Hospital, says City Paper, and it’s looking to expand its hours and menu later this summer.
  • A “mystery nude” painting fell out of the ceiling at the Fleisher Art Memorial, and officials there are now trying to find out who created it and how it got there, says Philly.com.
  • The Maglio sausage company, which has distributed to grocery stores and restaurants, is opening a direct-to-consumer retail operation at its plant at 3632 S. 3rd St., which the owners believe is close enough to the stadiums to get tailgating business, reports The Insider.
