Ansill Getting a Paint Job

With the help of an astute reader we tracked Ansill’s liquor license transfer to a corporation sharing an address with Stephen Starr. Today, the Inquirer’s Michael Klein (and keeper of all things Starr) reveals that the restaurant will be a partnership between Starr and his culinary director, Chris Painter. The restaurant, Il Pittore will be Northern Italian and should open in September.

Also, Klein disappoints us with news that the unnamed Starr biergarten planned for Frankford Avenue in Fishtown will not be ready until October.

    Chris Painter’s handmade pastas at Angelina were pretty special, I hope Il Pittore delivers the same kind of experience.
