You'd think that with all these new restaurants opening in Philly, something has to give.

Gone recently are two Italian BYOBs:

Gnocchi, which held down 613 E. Passyunk Ave., just off South Street, since 1997, folded in late December. It has resurfaced as MiaMare at 18 Tanner St. in Haddonfield, the former Melange.

Salento, which Davide and Kathryn Faenza opened in 2007 at 2216 Walnut St., closed after New Year's Eve. Kathryn Faenza says their original BYOB - L'Angolo - is still going strong in South Philly at 1415 Porter St.
