During the grand opening, Stella Rossa will be offering a complimentary appetizer (one per table).

Well now we know where Dave Magrogan’s Center City restaurant is going. Square Peg closed for good on Saturday, June 8th. The restaurant that initially featured Matt Levin in the kitchen but after near-universal panning by critics it never really caught on at the corner of 10th and Walnut Streets.
Next up is a new concept from Dave Magrogan.
Harvest Seasonal Grill, under construction in Montgomveryville
Dave Magrogan is expanding his restaurant empire. Already 14 restaurants strong, Magrogan is hiring managing partners, general managers, executive chefs and sous chefs for three restaurants he is planning on opening before the end of the year. Another Harvest Seasonal Grill is scheduled to open in Montgomeryville in August. A fifth Doc Magrogran’s (location unannounced) is in the works and Magrogan is promising a new concept to open in Center City. No word on what that concept will be, other than it will not be a 1920s diner.
