And where is your restaurant?

Two eateries go for the obvious in their names.

And where is your restaurant?

Two Center City restaurants are going for the obvious in the naming department.

City Grange, the restaurant inside the Westin in Liberty Place, is preparing to change its name to Center City Bar & Grill as its menu downscales to more bar items.

Now comes Pete Antipas, who is reopening his restaurant across from the Philadelphia Stock Exchange at 10 S. 20th St., which last was Blue Horseshoe.

Partnered with Doug Renthal, a former manager at the late Anjou in Old City, they're doing a neighborhood spot specializing in meats/poultry/seafood/vegetables on skewers -- though he is loath to use the term "kebabs" because the menu will not be Middle Eastern. The Philly-centered menu will include soups (such as pepper pot) and sandwiches; six local beers will be on tap. Open seven days for lunch and dinner (and weekend brunch), Renthal is hoping to give that part of town -- an office-heavy swath between Rittenhouse and Logan Squares -- a sense of identity. Opening is expected in the next several weeks.

They're calling it Center City Grille.
