Uh Oh: The IRS Raided Branzino On Tuesday


Rittenhouse Square was all abuzz last night with news that the IRS raided Branzino, the popular BYOB on 17th Street near Spruce. According to a report by Fox 29, there were guns and bulletproof vests involved.

Our attempts to reach the restaurant and its owner were unsuccessful. The IRS did not immediately return a call seeking comment.

Here’s the full report on Fox 29. Note the Best of Philly cameos.
