The team that gave us Pure Fare is planning on opening Agno Grill at 2104 Chestnut Street this spring.

The former El Fuego on Chestnut Street is getting a new tenant. Agno Grill is promising to bring “a new kind of Mediterranean” this spring. We confirmed that Pure Fare’s Kriti Sehgal is behind the project and she promises us details next week. Until then, we’ll just have to imagine what’s new and Mediterranean.
