Mike Pasquarello has successfully opened four restaurants, cafes and bars in Philadelphia including Cafe Lift, Prohibition Taproom, Bufad and Kensington Quarters. And next on his list is Buckminster’s at 21st and Federal in Point Breeze. The spot is named for architect Buckminster Fuller, who popularized the geodesic dome, but Pasquarello isn’t saying much else about the concept.

We do know that he’s backed down from the “Frenchy-tapas fare” that was mentioned in a Philly Voice story. When pressed, a representative for the restaurant said it will be a “neo-bistro.”

What might that mean …

We imagine something like this:

neo-bistro

Buckminster’s, opening later this summer.
