A step forward for Scarduzio's East Passyunk project

Table 31/Mia's/Scarduzio's chef-owner Chris Scarduzio and partners Stephen and Tamar Olitsky just got the keys for 1646-1648 S. 12th St. - the corner of 12th and Morris Streets.

But don't expect some quickie turnaround at the  home of Artisan Boulanger Patissier, which now has 90 days to relocate. Artisan has a new spot at 1218 Mifflin St.

Major work is ahead for the property before Scarduzio's bistro opens, and the concept is still being discussed.
