Despite what the weather might be doing, we’re calling it: Spring is here. And as always, the change in seasons gives us an excuse to look forward at all the upcoming restaurant openings that we’re excited about.
So here’s what we’ve got coming up on the calendar. One word of caution though: Before you all go getting too excited about one place or another, let’s keep in mind that restaurant opening dates are HIGHLY speculative. As history has taught us time and time again, just because some place says it’s going to be open in April doesn’t mean that we won’t still be waiting for it to open its door come November.

A liquor license application popped up in the window of the Triangle Tavern at 1338 S 10th Street along East Passyunk. The pending license transfer shows that David Frank and Stephen Simons are behind the purchase of the license. Frank and Simons are behind Royal Tavern, Khyber Pass Pub, Cantina Los Caballitos and Cantina Dos Segundos. What is unclear is what their plan is for the 80-seat bar. We have a message into the ownership but haven’t heard anything back yet.
The Triangle Tavern is located at the corner of 10th and Reed, across from the Acme and would be a great stopping point for people who work up a thirst walking from the Garage to the Pub on Passyunk East.
This isn’t the first time the Triangle Tavern as well as Frank and Simons have been connected. A year ago Meal Ticket first reported the business partners interest in the bar.
Meal Ticket reported earlier and then went back on a story that Stephen Simons and Dave Frank (Khyber Pass Pub, Royal Tavern, the Cantinas) were set to take over the Triangle Tavern at 10th and Reed. And as much as we would like that to be the case, Simons tells us it isn’t so. Though they did put a bid on the property “a while ago,” that offer was not accepted.
Simons also tells us construction has just begun on the long-anticipated Royal Izakaya project set for 2nd Street in Queen Village. The opening date for that Japanese pub is about three months out.
