Back for seconds

Have a successful concept? Why not do more?

Percy Street will open its BBQ shop in the Comcast Center's food court (17th and JFK, 215-964-9014) on Monday, Nov. 7. Chef Erin O’Shea will do easy-to-eat sandwiches, sides, sweet desserts and a $10 combo which includes a choice of sandwich, side and cold drink, including tax. Menu is here.

In the spring, Spread Bagelry is supposed to open a bake shop across the street, in the former Brown Betty cupcake store, at 269 S. 20th St. Given Spread's long-delayed opening, I had to ask if "spring 2012" is the target and not "spring 2013."

And Chris Fetfatzes of the South Philly beer-centric Hawthornes Cafe confirms that he and Heather Annechiarico are taking over Tritone, the jazz bar at 1508 South St. They are awaiting a transfer of the liquor license; Tritone remains open. Fetfatzes says they're not sure of the new concept.
