It looks like the opening of Chef Jeremy Nolen’s Whetstone restaurant in the former Adsum/Tapestry space on 5th and Bainbridge St. will be pushed into early 2015.

Nolen, the man behind the crazy-good menu at Brauhaus Schmitz, will look to keep it an “affordable” option in Queen Village with an ever-changing seasonal menu, according to foobooz. While we don’t know the exact date it will open, Nolan did provide us with some intriguing tastes of what’s to come.
While Karina’s was originally going to move down the avenue a bit near the fountain, plans changed. It’s now reopened in the former Hoof + Fin spot just off of South Street at 617 S. 3rd Street.

Formerly owned by Chef Pedro Beltano, Karina’s is now owned by his wife, Rosa Uzcha, who is also the head chef. Those who were keen on the the cuisine on Passyunk Avenue needn’t worry, they’ve kept the Spanish/Italian-fusion menu as is and are looking forward to life near bustling South Street.
