For Sale: The Murals from Friday Saturday Sunday
Back in 2005, Friday Saturday Sunday owner Weaver Lilley commissioned Philadelphia artist Tom Judd to create a series of murals for Lilley’s Rittenhouse Square restaurant. But now that the restaurant is closed and is in the midst of remodeling, the canvas segments have been removed, individually stretched and mounted as separate works of art.
Friday Saturday Sunday was a mainstay at 21st and Rittenhouse Square from 1973 to its closing in August, 2015. The restaurant was part of Philadelphia’s first restaurant renaissance and remained part of its scene for an impressive 42 years.
As for what’s next for the restaurant. Garces Group alum Chad Williams and his wife Hanna are refurbishing the restaurant and will reopen it with the same name.
