They’ve had a few weeks to get their legs under them, but now the crew at the new Zavino at Chestnut Square is ramping things up with longer hours and a new happy hour program.
First, the food and booze. Happy Hour deals will be constantly changing depending on the whims of chef Carlos Aparicio, his guys on the line and the staff behind the bar. But from 4:30 to 6:30 every day, look for things like “Bartender’s Choice” cocktails, $3 beers, $4 wines by the glass, $7 margherita pizzas, a variety of croquets, cheeses and veggies, and a $5 plate of meatballs that I kinda want right now.
In terms of service, Zavino is now offering lunch and dinner every day.
As always, follow Zavino on Twitter or like them on Facebook in order to stay in the loop on daily specials and whatnot.
Tonight, Bistrot La Minette is launching happy hour. The French restaurant is offering half-price appetizers and some excellent drink deals.
The deal runs from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday and the specials are only available at the bar and on the terrace.

Have you lost a tire in a pothole this winter? Then pour some out to your dead Firestone at Paramour. The Main Line bar is offering the Muddy Pothole cocktail to pay tribute to all of those
dead homies popped tires. The martini might bare a little too much resemblance to the slush splashing out of a pothole but we’re somehow attracted to this very dirty martini. The Muddy Pothole is Absolut Vodka, Muddled Kalamata Olives, Dry Vermouth and Olive Juice then garnished with black olives (tires). And it’s half-price during Paramour’s Liquid Therapy happy hour, that’s just $5.50.

Osteria Moorestown is rolling out happy hour tonight. The happy hour or more precisely, happy hours run from 3 to 6 p.m. and include drink specials plus free bites to eat. Grissini with pecorino and prosciutto, polenta panino with taleggio and porcini mushrooms and pizza al taglio will all be available free of charge.
Drink specials include red and white wines for $5, Menabrea beer for $3.5 and $7 specialty cocktails.
And with happy hour at Osteria Moorestown being a seven day a week deal, it’s worth noting that the Regal Moorestown 12 is now open for business. Osteria happy hour followed by a movie? That’s a solid date night.

Resurrection Ale House has said goodbye to chef Rhett Vellner who has left the Grays Ferry Avenue beer bar for some time off on his own out West. The new chef will be T.J. Murphy, who has worked at Resurrection in the past.
The menu has been tweaked (falafel burger) but rest assured, the fried chicken remains.
Resurrection is also now closed on Mondays. But what gets taken away is giveth. Sunday night now comes with a happy hour from 6 to 10 p.m. featuring $4 American drafts.
