Wine bar planned for South Street

Here's very early word about Jet Wine Bar, intended for a storefront at 1525 South St. sometime this fall.

Managing partner Jill Weber envisions Jet as a small wine bar/cafe with a simple selection of food.

The idea, she says, is to bridge the gap between the BYOBs (Pumpkin, Novita, Jamaican Jerk Hut, Apamante, L'Aube) and the bars (Bob & Barbara's) in Center City-meets-Graduate Hospital.

Weber is a well-traveled archaeologist who does a lot of work in Syria.
