Gene Giuffi’s Square Pie takes over their recently closed Cochon location as of tomorrow. Yesterday the ovens made the short move from the west side of 6th and Catharine Streets to the corner of Passyunk and Catharine.
If all goes well, the Best of Philly winner for new pizzeria will be back in business tomorrow for lunch.
Square Pie [Official]
Let’s start with the bad news: Cochon, Gene and Amy Giuffi’s porkerific Passyunk BYO, closed after eight years of service. Yes, that is very sad. Yes, the loss of another French restaurant is a blow. Yes, Cochon will be missed. Especially by dedicated pig addicts.
But there’s a silver lining to this cloud. The Insider is reporting that the Giuffi’s aren’t going to let the space stay dark. Because, you see, they have this other concept. A little place called Square Pie, which just happened to take home a Best Of Philly award this year. And Square Pie will be moving into the former Cochon space just as quickly as the Giuffis can manage it.
