Winter Restaurant Openings That Have Us Excited

We’ve already seen several impressive rebirths this year. Hawthorne’s has reopened after a blaze forced the beer cafe and bruncherie to close for almost a year, and they’re now offering beer delivery. Jose Garces has opened the Olde Bar at Bookbinders. The most impressive thing about this Olde Bar might be how little has actually changed. Even the plaques dedicated to faithful customers of Old Orignal Bookbinders remain. Earlier this week, the old Frankie Bradley’s, a well-known restaurant that fed the stars for 50+ years at 13th and Chancellor reopened as Franky Bradley’s. It’s now a nostalgic and sexy bar and restaurant from Silk City’s Mark Bee.

Not bad for the slowest time of year for restaurants.

Big Gay Ice Cream was next to Kevin Sbraga last night and will be again this summer.

As expected, Big Gay Ice Cream announced at Marc Vetri’s Great Chefs Event that the ice cream business is indeed coming to Philadelphia. The popular ice cream shop is going to be located on the South Street side of the SouthStar Lofts at Broad and South. Kevin Sbraga will be taking up the rest of the ground floor retail with his third restaurant.

Big Gay Ice Cream opened its first store in 2011 in the East Village and added a West Village outpost in 2012. Like Philadelphia, Los Angeles will also be adding a Big Gay Ice Cream in the summer of 2014.
