Inquirer critic and Michigan native, Craig LaBan, was excited. He had his Tigers in the World Series, and the Famous Detroit Coney Company taking over the Santa Fe Burrito Company’s 11th Street location. But the tail-end of 2012 proved to be full of upsets for LaBan; his Tigers blew out of the Series in blaze-less glory, and the 11th Street Coney dog concept fell through.
Instead, Ardmore and University City’s Hummus Grill, just signed the lease to the space, and they’re hoping to complete renovations by March of 2013. And since they bear the award for 2012 Best of Philly Shawarma Platter, maybe this is something worth getting excited for again.
