Okay, your beloved gourmet is now fitted out to whip up paella with a precision-weighed quantity of saffron and clean up afterward with minimal fuss. Now what she needs is a chance to get out of the house. And here’s where you should send her—because it’s where I wish people would take me: out to lunch.
The Fortieth Street M.E. Church at 4oth and Sansom is slated to be torn down to make way for a contemporary glass-front retail space that will include Dunkin’ Donuts, Whirled Peace Frozen Yogurt and Philadelphia Chutney Company. A fourth space has not been spoken for yet.
The demolition seems to be an issue for some and the church has been slated to come down several times before but it is still standing there vacant.
