Rex 1516 Is Coming to South Street

As we’ve previouly reported, Jet Wine Bar owners Jill Weber and Evan Malone are taking over the former Philly Kitchen Share and never was American Blackboard across the street from their South Street wine bar. Now the all-day restaurant has a name, Rex. The name is a play on the name of chef Regis Jansen.

Weber declined to provide a time frame but with the closing of the South Street location of Cafe L’Aube, the block needs a morning option.
