New La Colombe Planned for Independence Mall

dow-building-940The former Rohm and Haas building at the corner of 6th and Market Streets will be the home of a new La Colombe coffee cafe in 2015. La Colombe is leasing 1,700 square feet of ground-floor space at on Independence Mall. This will not be a mega La Colombe like the 11,000 square foot cafe recently opened in Fishtown.

The building has seen a rebirth of its public spaces since the joint venture of Keystone Property Group, Mack-Cali Realty Corporation and Parkway Corporation took over the building. Over the summer, the building’s plaza and breezeways were the home of the successful Independence Beer Garden.

La Colombe has been focusing on expansion since raising $28.5 million in backing this summer. No exact word on an opening date.

Philadelphia Is Getting Crabby

Philadelphia is getting crabby and it isn’t because the Eagles lost (thank goodness). We’ve been spotting crab specials pop up around town. Corner Foodery is offering snow crabs for $9.99 per pound or three blue crabs for $9.99. Each order of blue crabs gets a free 12-ounce draft. And tonight, from 5 to 7 p.m. tonight, the deal works in reverse. Buy a beer and get an order of free crabs.

Adam Erace reviews the pop-up Independence Beer Garden and offers tips for where and when to hang out but skewers the food, save what comes with cheese curds.

But don’t miss the cheese curds, light little poufs of tempura-fried Vermont goodness served with sweet, smoky tomato jam, the marinara to these new-school mozzarella sticks.
