The Passyunk Avenue Revitalization Corporation, which bought the building in February, hosted a meet-and-greet for near-neighbors with chef/owner Luke Palladino. We weren’t able to get to the meeting, but we did get a hold of a couple of renderings.
Palladino plans 80 seats inside and another 40 outside, a full bar with liquor license, craft cocktail list and a wine list, and big a neon sign on the front. But this isn’t necessarily what the sign will look like, said PARC director Sam Sherman:
The renovated building will be across the street from a $500,000 project to create an East Passyunk gateway at the wedge-shaped plot of land at the intersection of Passyunk, Broad and McKean. Work on that project should be starting any day now.
So, that makes two improvements over what’s there now:
So, even though we don’t have the final design of the sign yet, what do you think overall?
