Well, hello there. Liquor license appears on former Ugly American joint

The license, which lists the address as 1100 S. Front Street and zip code as 19104 (which is incorrect), is issued to No Eye Deer LLC. We hoping that’s not because the new owners have “no idea” what they’re doing with place. Fingers crossed. CORRECTION: D’oh! The license is being transferred FROM No Eye Deer to BMSS Holdings.

New restaurant on tap for the old Ugly American spot?

It looks as though the former Ugly American spot will soon be a restaurant again. We don’t have many details yet but this Fox Roach listing notes that the large, three-story property at Front and Federal streets has recently been sold for $450,000, though city records still list its last sale as being in 2007 for $541,685. The former Pennsport gastropub closed in early 2013 and the space at 1100 S. Front St. had seen little action since being put on the market.

However, after the listing had recently been removed from Zillow, we decided to contact Donna Santore, listing agent with Berkshire Hathaway/Fox & Roach Realtors to see if the pieces were starting to fall in to place.

Santore didn’t comment on specifics of the sale but did say that new owners are taking over and will be in settlement on the property in under 30 days. She went on to mention that they’re looking to open a new bar/restaurant that also features a brunch menu in the mold of For Pete’s Sake, located a few blocks north at Front and Christian Streets.
