Fairmount's next restaurant

Here's the scoop on what's being built at 2028 Fairmount Ave.

Fairmount's next restaurant

Meze is the tentative name for the restaurant under construction across from L’Oca at 2028 Fairmount Ave. in Fairmount, at the dead-end with Corinthian Street.

Coowner David Orphanides, a zoning attorney, says he and partner Savvas Novrosidis (Fairmount Pizza) intend it as a “comfortable, clean, fresh” place that will “focus on the human experience.” Orphanides says food from chef Tim Bellew (MANNA catering, plus Fire in Cherry Hill) will include as much organic as possible.

They hope to open after Labor Day.
