Manayunk bar is closed for renovations.
Sunday night saw Manayunk’s Beast & Ale close. We’re told it is for renovations and that all employees have been absorbed into the three Feliz restaurants (Cantina Feliz, Taqueria Feliz and La Calaca Feliz) owned by Tim Spinner and Brian Sirhal. We enjoyed the concept but that side of Main Street seems to struggle to get foot traffic. The location has previously been Bisou, Gemelli and MangoMoon.
On South Street, Alex Boonphaya is pulling the plug on Tuk Tuk Real. The Mexican/Thai mashup lasted about nine months (just about the same amount of time as Beast & Ale). Boonphaya will convert Tuk Tuk into the third location of his Circles family of restaurants, joining the original at 1516 Tasker Street and the more upscale location at 812 N 2nd Street in Northern Liberties.
If all goes well, the Circles location will open before July ends.
Have you got $35? Are you hungry and/or badly in need of a drink?
Then you’re going to want to cancel whatever plans you have for tomorrow night and do this instead.
