Old City is in line to get a Euro-style wrap-and-fry shop.
A European Republic sign recently went up outside the papered-over corner storefront at Chestnut and Strawberry Streets (next to Amada) that over the years has housed Meju, Mandoline, Dardanelles, Sabooor! and Tropico.
Workers at the original European Republic say that one of the founders is behind the new location.
Opening is expected within a few months.
(The description in the Times clip calls to mind a short-lived place about 10 years ago called The Frite Shop at 619 South St.)
