Dialing up PEnnsylvania 6

Restaurateurs Brian Harrington and Gary Cardi plan to go before a panel of the Washington Square West Civic Association with an outline for a new bistro to occupy the storefront at 114 S. 12th St. that last was Tweed; before that, it housed such spots as Les Bons Temps, TPDS, Odeon, and Bistro Bix.

Name= PEnnsylvania 6 (as in the old telephone exchange)

Concept= Bistro with a bar and raw bar downstairs and private dining upstairs

Bar= Rotating selection of craft beers, "affordable" wine

Expected opening= September/October

Harrington and Cardi have interests in a slew of spots including Chestnut 7 in Chestnut Hill, and Mission Grill, Public House, and Field House downtown.
