After a little over two years at 23rd and Pine Streets, Tria Fitler Square will close its doors for good. No closing date has been set just yet.
Tria Fitler Square has teamed up with the Pennsylvania SPCA for their canine-centric Wine and Woof! series, happening tonight and every Wednesday night this month through May 31.
Okay, so it is definitely hot cocoa weather. We can all agree on that, right? Rainy. Damp. Gray. Not yet so cold that you need a good, stiff shot of whiskey just to walk down the street to the Redbox (and two more when you get home), but not exactly balmy either. It takes a good, miserable, soaking kind of cold to make doing something as ridiculous as drinking a coffee mug full of hot melted chocolate seem wise, and that’s what we have right now.
But the folks at Tria Taproom and Tria Cafe Fitler Square are currently offering a little something extra with their hot cocoa.
They’re making theirs with wine. Read more »
In case you didn’t know it, today is Beaujolais Nouveau Day–that magical third Thursday in November when the year’s first bottles of Beaujolais get opened (and drunk).
In celebration of that day, we offer you this–a video from the crew at Tria in which wine director Michael McCaulley, worried that he isn’t French enough, goes through a Rocky-inspired training montage in order to get himself up to speed.
My favorite moment was the cameo by Georges Perrier (a moment that all of us who’ve spent enough time around Philly restaurants have had, IRL), but that’s all I’m saying. You’ll have to check it out for yourself to see what happens next.
If your Facebook feed is anything like mine this week it has been nothing but Pope maps and port-a-potties. That and some good people who are actually embracing the Pope coming to town and celebrating like its a blizzard.
Here are some of our favorite bar happenings this weekend.
The new location is set to open in early April at the old Dmitri’s location at 2227 Pine Street.
Executive chef Karen Nicolas now leads the kitchen with a larger, more dinner-focused menu, featuring seafood and pasta dishes. But don’t fret. Management promises you’ll still be able to find some of their most popular small plates and sandwiches.
Along with a larger menu, Tria Fitler Square will also have 30 outdoor seats (open as soon as things warm up a little outside). Meanwhile, the inside of the restaurant will be a bit different than you might remember from Dmitri’s, with additional windows for views of the park.
Tria posted a photo today of the progress they’re making at their new Fitler Square location. The Tria Fitler Square has been described as “almost on schedule” which should put the opening sometime in March.
The Tria on Fitler Square replaces Dmitri’s, and unlike the other two Tria Cafe locations, the restaurant will feature a full kitchen.
There are a million and one food photos out there on Instagram, but here are thirteen of Philadelphia’s restaurants that do Instagram best.

Russet posts a lot of vegetable pics, but makes ’em look very appetizing thanks to such bright hues.
Another specimen of the chioggia squash.
When we first tipped off that Tria Cafe was coming to the old Dmitri’s at 23rd and Pine we admittedly rolled our eyes. After all, just about every restaurant vacancy is rumored to become a Tria. It’s usually just wishful thinking but the neighbors of Fitler Square can cheer, Tria is really coming to the neighborhood.
Owner Jonathan Myerow told Michael Klein that the former Mediterranean restaurant will feature a full kitchen, “be more dinner-friendly” and serve a weekend brunch.
Look for the latest Tria to open before the year ends. Myerow also owns Tria Cafe locations at 18th and Sansom, 12th and Pine and Tria Taproom at 20th and Walnut.
