Restaurant institution Friday Saturday Sunday has been around since 1973, the lone survivor of Philadelphia’s first restaurant renaissance. Weaver and Jamie Lilly have guided the Rittenhouse Square restaurant through the decades and are selling the restaurant to Chad Williams, a Garces veteran and current chef at Tela’s Market. Williams and his wife Hanna are going to keep the name but make some cosmetic changes after a brief closure.

That closure is set for Saturday, August 15th, but before that happens, the Lilley’s are throwing one last wine dinner.

The wine dinner is set for Wednesday, July 29th. The dinner will consist of five courses paired with wines for $55. Make your reservation after 4 p.m. via telephone (215-546-4232), reservations are not being accepted via OpenTable.

Closing letter from the Lilleys

Dear friends of Friday Saturday Sunday,

In 1973 we were one of the first places to start the Philadelphia restaurant renaissance, and we’re now the oldest restaurant in Center City. The last of that generation.

However, all things must come to an end. Friday Saturday Sunday will close in mid-August.

But there’s good news. It’ll re-open with the same name after an extensive renovation. The new owners are an exciting couple, and I’ll be telling you more about them.

Meanwhile, please visit us before we close. Re-live the memories and tastes of our past. We’ll be bringing back some of the favorite dishes, as well as our exciting new specials.

It has been our pleasure and honor to serve you for the past 42 years.

All the best,

Weaver and Jamie Lilley, proprietors
