It appears that David Ralic has finally come to the conclusion that what’s needed to survive in this competitive restaurant business environment is a giant squid…and probably a liquor license.
Over on the Insider, they’re reporting that Ralic’s flagship Haddonfield steakhouse will be shutting the doors come February 16, after about two years in business. But David Ralic still has his brand-spankin’-new Ralic’s On South, which just opened here in Philly last month, on South Street. Two things the new joint has that the old one didn’t? A bar (and thereby the ability to sell you a fine whiskey to go with that porterhouse) and a giant octopus mounted over the front door.
