Big news today from 6 Points Restaurant Group, the gang now in control of the kosher mini-empire booming on the Main Line. It looks like Citron + Rose–the group’s flagship which was begun in collaboration with Michael Solomonov and his team, and is now being run by Six Points and chef Karen Nicolas sans Solo–is going to be expanding into Center City. Specifically, into Rittenhouse Square.

A little while back, we gave you an update on what was happening with David Magerman’s kosher empire on the Main Line. There was a casual sister-restaurant to Citron & Rose (to be called The Dairy), a commissary kitchen and, as a kind of bridging project between the commissary (already open) and The Dairy (which has been delayed), a bakery and cafe called Six Points Bakery.
The good news is, the bakery opened today–right on schedule. They’re offering peach-bourbon turnovers, rosemary-olive scones, fresh-baked bagels, challah and other breads, pastries and turnovers. All of this will be overseen by executive pastry chef George Fritzsche, and the cafe will also be serving tea and coffee from Philly’s One Village Coffee for those who want to stick around a while.
Six Points Bakery will be running a long schedule–open from 6am to 6pm, Sunday through Thursday.
Oh, and for those of you who are interested, The Dairy is now looking at an opening date in "late 2014."

It was originally scheduled to open on Montgomery Avenue in Merion Station in late fall, 2013, with a fallback date of January 2014.
Needless to say, the project missed those projections. But now we have some information on the project moving forward. From Magerman himself:
“We were thrown a lot of curves with the building we purchased for the project, and we had to suspend construction while we reevaluated the construction plans. As of a few weeks ago, we have resumed construction with a new contractor and a new plan, and the projected completion date is sometime in mid-Fall. The new name of the project is the Six Points Dairy, to align it with the branding of the parent company, Six Points Restaurant Group, and our catering arm, Six Points Kosher Events.”
