Petruce et al Closes

The fire's out at Petruce.

The fire’s out at Petruce.

The writing has been on the wall for awhile now at Petruce et al. The space has been for lease, the et al has scattered. Opening bartender George Costa left the business for central PA fly fishing, general manager Tim Kweeder left for Kensington Quarters and even Justin Petruce left his brother Jonathan to go work for Kevin Sbraga in Jacksonville, Florida.

The restaurant made it through a return engagement of Book of Mormon performing across the street at the Forrest Theater and Valentine’s Day but is now darkened.

The restaurant received excellent reviews but never seemed to receive the following needed to thrive.

Petruce et al remains on the market and will be available for events and collaborations for the time being.

Pig Feast at Petruce et al

Nobody burns wood more deliciously than Justin and Jonathan Petruce. Whether they’re cranking the height-adjustable grates of an Argentine-style grill to give lamb breasts a BBQ-like bark or roasting carrots for a dynamite cooked/pickled/raw salad, they coax intense depth from everything the flames lick. And Tim Kweeder’s wine list is the next best thing to a motorcycle tour of the gnarliest garagistes from Spain to Slovenia.   1121 Walnut Street, Midtown Village, 267-225-8232. Photo by Neal Santos
