Quick Bites

A couple of places that we’ve mentioned in the past now have names. Konstantinos Pitsillides’ Greek BYOB at 10th will be known as Kanella and Spruce. Alison Barshak’s second restaurant will go with Alison Two, which puts it near the top of the unfortunate names list. [Food & Drinq]

Speaking of unfortunate names, Bottom of the Sea is opening a location on the 700 block of South Street in the former Kama Sutra/Frank DiCicco campaign headquarters. [Feeding Frenzy, City Paper]

Blue In Green which we first mentioned was returning back in October is just days from opening on Chestnut Street. [Table Talk, Philadelphia Inquirer]

Devil’s Den, the gastropub at 11th and Ellsworth is hoping for an early February opening. Expect a focus on German and local beers. [Feeding Frenzy, City Paper]

Devil’s Alley owner Susan Schilisman is bringing her Sam’s Grill concept the corner of 11th and Sansom. [Table Talk, Philadelphia Inquirer]

If you believe the orange placards it looks like Del Frisco’s steakhouse is really coming to the Packard building at 15th and Chestnut. [Philly Chit Chat]

Oh great, Ho Sai Gai’s long closed 10th and Race location is going to return. Sorry we’re not more excited but growing up our phone number was one off from theirs and we received lots of late night drunk dials requesting wonton soup. Lets hope the number is different this time around. [Table Talk, Philadelphia Inquirer]
