Last summer, Philadelphia Runner signed a lease for a new shop at 4358 Main Street in Manayunk, and they’ve been hard at work revamping the space ever since. While they originally hoped it’d be up and running in time for the Philly Marathon last November, the design and build-out took longer than expected.
Here’s the good news: As of this week, the shop is officially, officially open for business, and they’re celebrating the grand opening this weekend with fun events Friday through Sunday.
A sandwich may be a humble thing, but these three sandwich shops are really going places. Nick’s Old Original Roast Beef (locations in Springfield and South Philadelphia) is opening in West Chester, Tony Luke’s is expanding into Manayunk, and Joe’s Steaks + Soda Shop is looking at a March opening for its Fishtown location.
According to West Chester Dish, Nick’s Roast Beef is slated to open on Monday, Februaary 23rd. The new location will be at 1215 West Chester Pike.
After much ado, Rubb, a beer, bourbon and barbecue joint in Manayunk finally opened. And now, Philadelphia Weekly’s Brian Freedman has visited the restaurant and is singing its praises.
Rubb will win over plenty of fans as word gets out about this simply decorated yet inviting spot an easy drive from the city. The rub itself is a uniquely sweet one, yet not overwhelmingly so, and it’s plenty complex. When applied to the generous ribs and allowed to meld with the meat over the course of its stint in the smoker, an almost molasses-like texture develops on top, sticking to the teeth in layers with each bite and providing the slightest sense of crystalline crunch. Bumping up against the smoky-earthy meat, the result is a mouthful that’s rich in sweetness and savor in equal measure, and a seriously fine serving of ribs.
