Karina’s, the Italian-Spanish BYOB that is being replaced by Le Virtu’s Brigantessa, will be moving into the building next to Fond at the East Passyunk fountain.
The Passyunk Avenue Revitalization Corporation, which owns the building currently housing Karina’s half a block away, made the announcement on their Twitter feed.
The owner of the new location, 1535 S. 11th St., recently went before the Passyunk Square Civic Association for zoning permission to convert the property into a “white box” on the first floor for a restaurant to be named.
Looks like the mystery is solved. The move will also likely placate fans of Karina’s who were bugged that the BYO was being ousted.
