2023 Repurposing of an Italian Restaurant

Lobongo Kabab

What was once a long-standing Irish bar and, more recently, Delco’s umpteenth Italian restaurant is now an event hall with an attached all-day kebab cafe, owned by the same Bangladeshi couple behind Rittenhouse’s new Royal Indian Cuisine. This is one of the few places where you can find whole fish cooked in a tandoor and chili-covered (and we do mean covered) bullet naan. As for the kebabs, don’t leave without the ground lamb and ground chicken. And some goat biryani, of course.
