Restaurant notes: 500° to return Tuesday; Jet Wine Bar on the way

The burgery was shut by fire on June 4. And South Street sippers will have a new destination.

Restaurant notes: 500° to return Tuesday; Jet Wine Bar on the way


  • 500°, the burger joint at 1504 Sansom St. shuttered by fire on June 4, will return Tuesday (delayed a day), says owner Rob Wasserman, who also owns Rouge on Rittenhouse Square.
  • Jet Wine Bar, an international snack-and-wine operation I first mentioned here way back last summer, is shooting for a mid- to late-July opening at 1525 South St., says owner Jill Weber, an archaeologist working in Syria at the moment. (If you need a taste, check out Weber's blog here.)
