Cheese-lovers rejoice! DiBruno Brothers has opened their newest location at 834 Chestnut Street in The Franklin Building. The new shop feels like something of a hybrid of their other two downtown locations. Its pressed tin ceiling, pendant lighting and beveled tile work make the space feel lush (it is in the historic Ben Franklin House, after all) yet very much in line with the DiBruno aesthetic. The shop at The Franklin feels small, but only because it lacks the sweeping floor plan with case after case of prepared foods and beverages of the 19th Street location–and it’s still massive compared to 9th Street. There’s a comprehensive cheese counter, a coffee bar, a produce case, and an impressive array of olive oils, vinegars, jams, and other accompaniments, and the DiBruno line of prepared foods and beverages is available for take-out. The one thing that people will gripe about in the new space is the lack of indoor seating, but the new shop will heat your sandwich in a hyper-charged microwave oven (developed by the folks at Subway), called the Turbochef, to ensure that your bread is crispy and your cheese gooey when you take it back to your car or your desk or whatever not-as-beautiful-as-the-Franklin place to eat it.
Di Bruno Bros. location at the base of the Franklin at 9th and Chestnut opens today at 9 a.m. The latest location of Di Bruno Bros. will have limited hours through the weekend, closing at 3 p.m. each day.
The grand opening is set for Monday and there are lots of events planned including a risotto in a parmesan wheel that is flambeed.
In its opening weeks, Di Bruno Bros. will invite producers of many of the artisanal items they carry to put on demonstrations and samplings. Look for an exact schedule to be announced during the opening days.
