Plenty Café to Close and Rebrand Its Queen Village Location
It'll reopen as Village, a neighborhood restaurant and bar serving elevated American comfort food.
Plenty Café’s Queen Village outpost is getting a rebrand. The European-inspired all-day cafe will close after brunch service this Sunday, February 17th.
Owners Anthony and Damon Mascieri, who own the space at 705 South 5th Street, will reboot it as Village, a comfort food-focused neighborhood bar and restaurant serving lunch, dinner, and brunch. Plenty locations in East Passyunk and Rittenhouse will remain unchanged.
The brothers worked with Plenty executive chef Kenneth Kunz to develop Village’s menu of elevated American comfort fare. They’ll add a fryer to the kitchen, allowing for more bar snacks; the menu includes classics like Buffalo wings, Cobb salad, truffle bacon mac ‘n’ cheese, burgers, and grilled salmon as well as house-made pasta.
The new concept will also feature several televisions as well as a kids’ menu. Ten percent of all profits from the kids’ menu will be donated to the nearby Meredith School. The owners are planning to launch Village in early March.
The Mascieris will send off that Plenty location before Sunday’s closure with a concert on Friday, February 15th with dinner, New Orleans-style cocktails, and sets by the band Hot Club at 7 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.
