Two Bells for Two Nicholas’s
Craig LaBan reviewed South Philly BYOB Nicholas and discovered that chef-owners Nick Matteo and Nick Sweeney, “clearly remembered to give their casual new bistro the one essential ingredient it needs to eventually become complete: heart.” But… LaBan cautions his cranky suburban readership that there’s no need to hop in the Beemer and head to Pennsport to sample the fresh-n-local fare:
“The result may not be the kind of fine-dining destination that merits a drive from far afield. But the little BYOB they created has the charm, personality and value to be a delightful neighborhood fixture, especially for an emerging neighborhood like Pennsport in deep South Philly, which had yet to score its go-to local bistro.”
Next week, LaBan hits another South Philly jawn, Da Vinci.
