The Philadelphia Business Journal’s Peter Van Allen confirms a rumor we’ve heard from time to time for almost a year now. Popular brunch spot, Sabrina’s is going to be opening on the Main Line. Already with locations at 9th and Christian, Fairmount and on Drexel’s campus, expansion will see the next location opening in Wynnewood, in the former Sam’s Grille location. The spot in the Wynnewood Shopping Center will join Tiffin and Elevation Burger as food options for the complex.
Van Allen says the Wynnewood Sabrina’s aims to open before 2013 ends.

Border Springs Lamb Farm has opened in the Reading Terminal Market. The stand (which is directly behind the Original Turkey stand, just off the center court) offers a cuts of lamb, plus lamb sausages and gyro loaves for retail sale. And just this week they’ve begun to roll out their prepared foods. When fully operational the stand will offer lamb-centric dishes for breakfast and lunch.
Today I tried the “Name that Sandwich.” It’s a gyro, made with Border Springs Lamb Farms lamb loaf but they cannot call it a gyro, since Olympia Gyros is the Terminal’s exclusive gyro provider. So if you’ve got a better name, tell owner Craig Rogers and you can win a gyro loaf. Some might complain that the sandwich was on the small side but the gyro meat, cooked up by chef Aaron Gottesman was flavorful and satisfying. It also provided me with room for a Miller’s Twist pretzel but not enough for one of Beiler’s donuts.
I look forward to returning to try more dishes, including the lamb kebabs in Korean marinade.

The Mugshot Diner in Fishtown is opening for business this Thursday. The 150-seat diner will be serving classic diner favorites in a fresh looking space. Omelets, fritattas, pancakes, waffles, and the rest of the breakfast items will be served all day long. The lunch and dinner menu includes salads, burgers, sandwiches and some fancier, less diner like entree dishes.
Hopefully the Mugshot will become a great neighborhood diner, something that Fishtown could certainly use. The diner will be open 7 a.m. to 2 a.m. Sunday through Wednesday, 7 a.m. to 3 a.m. on Thursday, and 24 hours on Friday and Saturday.

New York-based Devon & Blakely has set up base at 18th and Market, in the former Pikkles Plus location. The breakfast and lunch spot offers 18 hot soups daily, plus sandwiches, wraps, paninis, quesadiallas and salads. Yesterday we checked them out for lunch. We went with the Blackened Chicken Gyro which was really just a sliced chicken sandwich with spicy sauce on a grilled pita. Decent, but kind of small for $8.50.
Next time we’ll consider the tossed salad bar which had lots of fresh looking toppings to choose from. Salads start at $3.50 for a small and $4.50 for a large. Add-ons range from 50¢ to $2 each.
We’d have some photos of the inside but we were told no photos, and even had a finger wagged at us.
