Opening This Week

It’s the last full week of the month and there are many restaurants still aiming to open before the calendar flips to November.

Chris Painter’s Il Pittore is set to open this Wednesday. We’re getting a walk through today of Stephen Starr’s latest restaurant, so expect more on that by tomorrow morning at the latest.

Gastropub Molly Malloy’s is set to open in the Reading Terminal Market, perhaps as early as tomorrow. The replacement to the beer garden will feature 24-tap lines of craft beer and daily happy hours.

Birra on East Passyunk won’t be making it open by tomorrow’s Witch Craft Beer Crawl but the pizza and beer spot is still promising to open by the end of the month.

Ela, fronted by Jason Cichonski and Chip Roman is in its final stretch. Popping up over the weekend, their twitter feed.
