Blackbird Pizzeria, the vegan landmark, opening a location in Northern Liberties

After seven years on Sixth Street near South, vegan hotspot Blackbird Pizzeria is in expansion mode.

Mark Mebus and crew are coming to Northern Liberties, as Blackbird will take over the space at 614 N. Second St. that last housed Same Same and previously Koo Zee Doo.

It will be a copy of the original, with the same menu.

Mebus says it should open this spring.

Joe Scarpone and Michael Hersch of MPN Realty handled the transaction.
